Thinking about how we could face down such a foe, prevail, and restore our way of life is an interesting exercise. Perhaps the thinking and the preparation, will also prepare us to face any future disaster or challenge that comes our way. The fight against Zombies isn't handled by the government or the military. The fight against Zombies is handled by the American people with each family and each community refusing to die, rallying against the dead, facing them down, and putting them permanently in the grave.

The Zombie Apocalypse is a fictional reminder that we, the people, are the militia. Ultimately, we are responsible for defending ourselves, our families, our communities, our countries, and our cultures. The Zombie Apocalypse is something fictional and entertaining to think about. However, every so often there comes a day that reminds us that not every apocalypse is fictional. On the morning of September 11, 2001, we weren't thinking about the end of the world. But, then a band of Islamic hijackers took over four airliners. They crashed three of those airliners into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The fourth airliner crashed in a Pennsylvania field after passengers stood up, looked death in the face, and prevented another suicidal crash. The fourth airliner was destined for the U.S. Capitol. It was an attempt to decapitate our nation's government.
As we prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse, we accumulate water, food, firearms, ammunition, knives, sharp pointy sticks, first aid supplies, and other survival equipment. If the Zombie Apocalypse ever comes, we'll be ready. But, don't think we have forgotten about 9/11. We remember who funded the 9/11 hijackings and where the hijackers came from. We remember who danced in the streets and we remember where. We won't ever forget about 9/11. It wasn't a tragedy or an accident. 9/11 was a deliberate attack. We won't fall for false conspiracy theories about 9/11. We know where the conspiracy was hatched and by whom. It's been 15 years now, but we won't ever forget. If some mindless death cult attacks us again, we'll all be a little more ready.
Ironically, the government that the terrorists tried to destroy moderates public anger about 9/11. It reminds us not to discriminate. It exhorts us not to hate. It shields us from the 28-pages of the 9/11 commission report that point a finger at a foreign government. Perhaps such moderation is proper in a world where we as a nation have nuclear weapons at our finger tips. Those are big issues to ponder. But, this site is just about preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse. There's nothing to see here. Move along. Remember the victims of 9/11. Remember the soldiers who have died in the wars spawned by 9/11.
