I was at a garage sale over the summer and picked up a book called "The Coming World Crisis." It talks at length about the coming hard times, economic collapse and WAR! It also promises that soon the world will plunge into unprecedented turmoil. The author warns that these will be painful and difficult times for all and that we must take action NOW! The cover is replete with marching armies, guys in turbans, tanks and a fallen Statue of Liberty. And it was written in 1980. It does give me great perspective though. People have been talking about the end of the world since the beginning of the world. While I'll continue to prepare, I no longer panic. And while I pay attention to the news I continue to work my plan. This post has no other message than that. I hope you're doing the same.
