Happy New Year everyone and congratulations on another year of prepping. Our numbers are growing and that is a wonderful thing. We, as preppers have done a great job this year of helping those who are new to our beliefs and dispelling many of the negative assumptions that seem to attach to us without basis.
We can imagine a world where no one is waiting for assistance in desperation after a disaster. A world where no one fears their neighbour knowing what they have because their neighbour is a prepper too. A world where ideas are shared easily without risk of suspicion. A world where each home is a castle, capable of producing it's own needs. Each street is a small town able to help and share and each neighbourhood is it's own little city, trustworthy and capable. This world is not impossible nor unrealistic, in fact, this world is the past.
The Holiday season is a time of reflection and thankfulness so I would like to thank you, the C.P.N. members for helping to create the world of my imagination. The world that we all strive to live in is attainable and it begins with you.
Thank you all for doing what you do, and for sharing what you do with those of us who are less experienced.
I'm sure we can all remember being a new prepper and how hard it was in the beginning, so thank you existing members for your knowledge and experience and for sharing so readily.
I wish you all the very best in the coming new year.
Happy 2013 C.P.N.!!!
