  • Preparedness Lessons from Chicken Little

    If Chicken Little were real, he would be working overtime running around yelling that the sky is falling. Perhaps he would be right, perhaps the sky is falling. What Chicken Little did not say was a single word about preparedness; all he did was run in circles freaking out. There are two things you can learn from Chicken Little. 1.
