Survival means different things to different people but for those of us who realize that the world is really in a precarious situation, survival means that we are going to do whatever is necessary to ensure that our family is safe when things go down. We may begin stockpiling food and water to ensure that we are not hungry during that time and we may even pay attention to our physical health so that we can get through a difficulty as well. When you plan ahead for survival, you will find that your odds of surviving increase dramatically.
