    I am so sorry to hear about your granddaughter. That is a terrible loss.

    I heard on the news today that there are over 6000 cases of swine flu in Australia, with a number of deaths. One of the things that the health organizations are watching is what happens in the southern hemisphere where they are now having winter.

    It is true that we don’t take things seriously until they are right upon us. Maybe we are too spoiled, too used to systems in place that seem to handle bad things for us much of the time. Just call 911 or wait for FEMA.

    Plus, bad things happen to other countries, states, neighborhoods, but not to ours. Maybe we just don’t have enough experience with adversity in our young (less than 250 years old is very young), fun-loving, escapist, wealthy (by global and historical standards) country to respect the risk of bad times.

    As schools are about to start up again and flu season is thus closer than we think, I decided that the best thing I can do about my worry for my unprepared family (I mean the other households of my extended family) is to send them each a prep pack to get them started.

    I’ve been collecting masks, gloves and so forth since April when the scare first hit. (That’s when I first discovered your site, when I was trying to figure out what I needed to do.)

    When I had more than enough masks, gloves and sanitizer for my family locally, I collected some more because it hit me that I wasn’t going to be able to live with myself if family members in other states were caught up in the shortages that will likely occur. It would be no comfort that they could be blamed for not preparing.

    If someone in my or my husband’s family got very ill from the flu and they didn’t have any masks, etc., I would fear that they might have been spared if only I had spent a little more time and money to get them at least a little bit ready.

    Now I’m assembling flu boxes for mailing and delivery. Some are getting a couple boxes each of masks and gloves, and a printed guide for flu home care and a note from me about the kinds of things (ORS ingredients, medicines, food, more masks and sanitizer) they should be getting now, and why.

    A couple of boxes, for particularly vulnerable and less able households, have more supplies, including the various OTC medicines. I’ll also be making up a few packets of the ORS solution (sugar, salt) for those boxes, along with instructions for how to make more.

    This project is taking time and extra money, but a little sacrifice now might save the life of a family member if it increases their awareness and motivates them to get more ready themselves. If I could only send a handful of masks and a printed flu guide (there are free ones on the net for those who can’t afford to pay for them) to each home and nothing else, at least I would know I had done what I could before it was too late.

    I hope all this turns out to be unnecessary. But that’s not likely.

    Its true! The media is too obsessed with celebrity deaths to remind people that the H1N1 flu is alive and kicking. There are confirmed cases of the flu in 1/3 of all the counties in my state. I live in Kansas, its not the largest populated state out there. I hear about people finding out Dad got the flu, then the whole family is quarantined and living on food storage and the good graces of neighbors and family that are able to go shopping for them.

    I did really well boosting my 3 month food storage in May (when all the news was filled with woe), but I am getting to be more of a slacker since we are eating more from the garden and grocery shopping less often. Thanks for the reminder!

    We had a grand daughter still born almost 2 years ago. It’s very difficult. I don’t know how those without the gospel knowledge deal with it. It’s even hard with that knowledge. Though, like you, it helps us to know that she is just waiting for us.

    I want to thank you for keeping things real with this pandemic situation. It’s really bugging me that the media are being so lax about what and how they are reporting. Not to mention the “authority” figures they are choosing to use in their down playing of the pandemic realities.

    Dee, Why not send a copy of Carolyn’s book (Prep Not Panic) to each one. It’s got great lists your family can put up in a cupboard to guide them now and when the flu comes.
