I just sat through about 45 of that horrid movie, "This is The End". It wasn't horrid because it was crass and vapid. It horrified me because it seemed too real.
I'm just going to pick on you Millennials. I can't help but think about your generation when I think of a major disaster, and the die-off that will follow. Gen X at least has a few years of maturity on you, and the Gen Z kids are flexible with a healthy distrust of authority.
You Millennials will look like Franco, Hill and that bunch in the movie. (Not all of you, but most). At a certain point, you figure out that life just isn't all fun all the time anymore. You'll need to work hard to survive. And in the real world, failure is always a possibility.
In a survival situation, a whole bunch of folks will be in denial. Frozen in terror of doing the wrong things, then arrogantly charging forward risking their (and their loved one's) lives.
I've browbeat y'all on this for the longest time. It's just that it's "National Preparedness Month" now. Locally, someone is giving out a "survival kit". It's a red drawstring bag with four items in it. Yes, FOUR items. How many folks are going to grab that, throw it in their closet, and think that they are "prepared"? Maybe splurge on a pack of batteries for your flashlight?
We saw Harvey and Irma coming. But there will come a time when we don't see It coming. Disaster aid will be slow in responding, if at all.
It won't be funny when you pull that red bag out. I don't think anyone will be laughing.
