Our Favorite Quotes from Scott James

Relationships are so much more significant than a closetful of gear with regards to preparedness. (See The Preparedness Teams in links below.)

Almost assuredly, science is telling us this will not the last pandemic within our lifetimes. We need to take all of the learning that we have been accumulating during this one...[and] we can definitely do it better next time.

That's what this country is all about. We can learn from our mistakes, pick ourselves up by our boot straps and then do it better the next time.

The politicizing of the masks was a huge frustration, and I saw guilty parties on both sides.

Plug into what's going on with your City Council, what's going on in your neighborhood, what's going on in your town where you can have direct impact in the real world, where you can see things with your eyes, you don't have to wonder if it's fake or not because you are seeing it on a screen, and you can plug in a positive way.

Relationships are more important than gear. Don't be afraid, come from a place of love.
