History is full of alliances between countries. The interesting thing about an alliance is that they are formed before a crisis arises. In other words, two parties agree to support one another before things go awry. Who is in your support group? Who can you depend on in the time of need? Who is in your village? Who do you have an alliance with? The time to plan for a crisis is before it occurs. We are typically reactive instead of proactive. Now is the time to plan. Put your affairs in order. Identify a beneficiary, and an executor. Create new alliances and revisit old ones before its too late.
