Yes - Attitude is everything. So what does this mean, especially during an emergency, disaster, or catastrophic event?
After 35 years of educating, supplying, and encouraging folks for emergency preparedness, I am convinced and truly believe that the most important element in emergency and disaster preparedness is one's attitude. I am also aware that in our society where personal responsibility and owning one's choices is not the essential value it should be, choosing an appropriate attitude is exceedingly difficult. It is even more difficult during a situation where you are gripped with stress, anxiety, and fear.
