See beyond our own time

My Quaker meeting plans to discuss questions to not only stimulate discussion, but to begin to form a plan to meet our survival needs. We need to establish a baseline to know what Friends think about our present condition and what to do about it.

Survival needs are ranked as:

  • Oxygen/air
  • Water
  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Physical, mental, and spiritual health

So, the questions are:

  • What will we do to prepare for when clean water is no longer available? (Coming through water lines or even available to buy).
  • What will we do when food is no longer available from grocery stores?
  • What will we do for shelter? Survival will require us to live near water and food supplies. And each other.
  • How do we govern our communities? Who is included in our communities?
  • What to do about energy?
  • What to do about safety?
  • What medications and diagnostic equipment (blood pressure, thermometer, etc) should we stockpile?
  • What are our children thinking? Can we find ways to engage those who aren’t now involved?
  • How can we gather and store things like books for when digital technologies are no longer available?
  • Who already has such plans that might help us?
