Looking Back
With Bert The Turtle in 1951 many of us grew up in the 'Duck and Cover' era remembering the 'Fallout Shelter' signs. The government instilled in our minds to be prepared so in the 50s and 60s it was big business building and supplying/stocking bomb shelters today however is different, the government now deems it unnecessary (evil) today the government wants us to rely on them not self-reliance.

RE: Looking Back
I lived through the fall out shelter times and as a family we canned large amounts of food and always had a little bag of essentials in the corner of the closet. The school drills of hiding under the table and covering your eyes still is ingrained in me hahahahah. It was a good way of teaching personal action instead of sit and wait for someone else to come save the day.

There is never a bad time to be ready and THAT is just another word for being prepared. Today it seems to have a greater "connotation" than denotation. Even the Boy Scouts I grew up in and later scout Mastered said "Be Prepared".
