its 2012 already-part 1
What would you carry out of your house if you could only carry one thing?
Your sick child? No, a warm coat, good pair of shoes, and gloves and a hat don’t count. That’s a given.

What about your prescription? Or, if you are so inclined your best bottle of Napoleon brandy. Some fishing hooks and line for survival? A flashlight? Gold and silver?

What would you carry out of your house if you had to leave suddenly and would not be returning. Sadly many of us would grab their gun for protection out there. It’s going to be scary. You will have to take care of yourself. Try to take care of those you love while you can.

How about your Bible or the Koran? It might come in handy in 2012.

    An excellent question. Perhaps the region of the country might made a difference as to what one would grab on the way out the door.
