While fitting some barrels at work today I started to think about the weaker of our society. Both physically and mentally. As usual I look back on past experiences for indicators of what people do in bad circumstances. For example, during a major ice storm many years ago there were three cases where people commited suicide because they were trapped in their homes with no food, no heat, no electricity, and no communication in or out. More recently (last year) two people commited suicide in the neighboring County when they lost everything in a flood. A couple I know of in our County did the same. So, SHTF and people come to the realization that society and life as we know it has changed and not for the better. This raises some questions like; How many people do you think will just give up as opposed to trying to survive? Should we try to stop them if they are trying to kill themselves? If someone in your group mentions suicide or giving up what do you do?
