The New York Times just published this article "Priced Out of the Market", which makes the price of food look bleak here in the states. According to the article, the price of wheat is up 80% since last year. Hello? That's huge.
It's called the Food Crisis.
If you've been to the grocery store lately, duh, you know it is ridiculously expensive. It's gonna get worse. So, buy some chickens, share a cow, eat wheat, and be happy.
“We can begin ever so modestly. We can begin with one week’s food supply and gradually build it to a month and then to three months. I am speaking now of food to cover basic needs. As all of you recognize, this counsel is not new. But I fear that so many feel that a long-term food supply is so far beyond their reach that they make no effort at all. Begin in a small way, my brethren, and gradually build toward a reasonable objective” (In Conference Report, Oct. 2002, 65; or Ensign, Nov. 2002, 58).
Afterthought: Although prices are going up, calamities abound, rumors spread, and fear becomes mainstream...panic does not equate faith. I'm just gonna try to be prepared.
