“As long as I can remember, we have been taught to prepare for the future and to obtain a year’s supply of necessities. I believe the time to disregard this counsel is over. With the events in the world today, it must be considered with all seriousness. Create a plan if you don’t already have one, or update your present plan. We are not in a situation that requires panic buying, but we do need to be careful in purchasing and rotating the storage that we are putting away.” Elder  L. Tom Perry
