Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

FAR SHORT of being truly PREPARED

“...we still have a great concern that as a people we are far short of truly being prepared.  The heart of welfare services’ success is not church preparedness but member preparedness....I am afraid that some members are laboring under the illusion that in difficult times the Church will take care of them.  This is not so.  The Church is prepared to take care of a limited number of members for a relatively short period of time.”
