"The last ten years have done quantifiable damage to Americans' sense of security, both physical and economic. From the ravages of Hurricane Katrina to the collapse of the housing market, the last decade has been a relentless assault on our sense of invulnerability and insulation from natural and financial disasters. In response to this, hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans have proudly become "preppers." Preppers are a community and a movement; they are mostly suburbanites who are taking control of their uncertain fate by taking whatever precautions are necessary to make sure their families survive the hazards to which we're all exposed.

It's practical and necessary"--
