I went to see the movie “2012” over the weekend and boy was it a thrill ride!!! I took my 12-year-old son to see the movie and I couldn’t tell who was having more fun– him or me. From earthquakes to tsunamis and car wrecks to flaming fireballs falling from the sky– this movie has it all!!! Sort of reminded me of the 70’s disaster flicks (I’m dating myself) which seemed to run consecutively and had the public mesmerized. The movie simply asks “how would the governments of the world prepare 6 billion people for the end of the world?” Though the movie was just that– a movie– it did remind me of the importance of disaster preparedness and the fact that, as Red Crossers, we strive to prepare everyone for all types of disasters– from major to minor to in between.
