More About The Preppers Lament by Ron Foster
What does it mean to lament? It means to express passionately your grief. It is crying. It is mourning. It is grieving. Sometimes it's all you, or others, can do. David is a prepper with a heart and he sorrows for those who have not heeded the call to prepare. Those poor souls who have not put food and supplies away in case of a disaster are facing famine and disease from a cyber attack that has taken the electrical grid down. David has other laments, things that only a prepper knows or can share. Protecting his own food and his humanity is one distraction; the other is his concern for people who are forced to labor in public works projects in order to receive food. The disaster scenario that the story is based upon the assumption a cyber attack has taken out the majority of the nation's electrical grid. The book begins in a unique way asking the reader to envision their existence and their sorrows 2 weeks after their lights went out. What is it at this stage of the disaster that they are lamenting the most about? After the preface explains this conceptualization the story starts as the main character begins his day surviving and seeking solutions to his continuing existence in a post apocalyptic world. It is about defining how one will handle lamenting mans existence in a world undergoing societal collapse at a very slow rate. Power is still on in some Midwest states nut for how long and can these city states hold up under the pressure of hoards of hungry refugees making their way towards them. Martial law, famine, neighbor against neighbor and increasingly frequent terrorist attacks impede workers and government trying to restart the grid.
