It is difficult for many to imagine a world without smart phones, computers, automated processes and the relative ease with which we in North America live our lives.
If, though, we experienced a life altering, infrastructure decimating survival event, a lot of that ease would very quickly go by the wayside.

Instead of going to the Emergency Room or doctor to get an illness or injury treated, we may have to do it ourselves.
