One of the hottest topics in our world today is the controversy over GMO foods. Companies, government, and citizens, have yet to come to an agreement over what should and should not be allowed by companies that produce GMO foods. With each side clamoring with opposing oppositions this could be a debate that lasts for quite some time. The only question is will we come to a resolution before it’s too late?
It’s always been my belief that a society with a healthy understanding and knowledge of firearms has a better opportunity to protect itself than one with no information about how to defend themselves. Get out there and take a class, or call up a friend who can show you a few things. You’ll be glad you did.
Our survival as a species has depended so much on the fact that we’ve been able to form groups of communities to increase our stock as individuals. We learned very early on that we are stronger when we’re part of a diversified group. We’re able to gain better insight into what’s happening in the world around us. But when those communities are forced into existence by an organization designed to exploit them, bad things happen.
Stories, much like our own lives, are filled with constant action. Every choice we make leads to a consequence. Sometimes those consequences are good, sometimes they’re bad, but there is always an end result. Every once in a while we’re faced with a decision that effects not just ourselves, but the people around us and the people we care about. It’s the type of action you take in those pivotal moments that define you, just like they define stories.
We all struggle with balance of what we believe is right and those with different viewpoints and opinions than us. It takes courage to follow your own path, and even if you do there will be those that criticize you for it, and there is always the possibility that you may fail. But if you stay true to yourself, and what you believe, you’ll have a better chance of getting through it than if you stopped. You only fail when you quit.
If we’re ever in a position where the grocery store shelves have gone bare, and individuals are forced to find their own food, people will turn to hunting and savaging. Those that already possess the knowledge of how to hunt will have a leg up on those who don’t. It would be an incredibly valuable asset in the post-apocalyptic world.
During our darkest moments people turn to their friends, their families, or their loved ones to help pull them through. That bond, and those relationships help forge us as a society as well as individuals. But once that trust is broken there is no guarantee that it will ever be mended.
