There are no words that I have for those runners in Boston. I sat and watched the news in pure shock. How could this have happened? All of the runners and spectators who were there are in my thoughts and prayers, constantly.
There are no words to describe the pure and utter sadness of this event. This is a world wide event, and it is full of people who worked hard to get there, people who sacrificed so much to push their limits, and someone who hates us chipped away at our naivete.
Then the news cuts to the terrifying situation on the Korean Peninsula. Threats of bombings. Vows to destroy us. Desire to throw the world into chaos.
What is happening? What can we do? How do we respond to this?
The past few weeks, P and I have had some serious discussions, asking if we are ready if a terrorist attack occurred, or a major natural disaster, what would we do? How would we respond? Do we have the necessary means to care for ourselves for a few hours, a few days, or even weeks? Where do we go? How do we contact each other?
Over the course of the next few weeks, I think we need to have this conversation. How do we prepare for an emergency and how do we respond in that event?
Tomorrow I will start outlining our emergency preparedness plan. I will show you what we have done and what steps we have taken to prepare for an emergency.
Do you have a plan in place? Are there any precautions you have taken?
