When The Occurrence almost devastated our nations, social normalities took a backseat to fear and panic. But thanks to the quick actions of GASP, major catastrophe was avoided and the world was put right again. As the sun rises on a new era of stability, we must all come together to embrace one another and forge a lasting peace.
In the spirit of tranquility, it’s time to learn to be social again, and make friends with your fellow citizens. We must lay aside our mistrust and fears that the world will end tomorrow, and stretch out a friendly hand. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you get started:
Start with a small gesture: Perhaps sharing a home-cooked meal or lending your neighbor your solar-powered generator. Starting small can help build connections slowly.
Offer your skills: You have a unique set of skills that helped you survive the events leading up to The Occurrence. Perhaps you have medical training, a solid understanding of carpentry, or agricultural knowledge. Whatever your special skillset, offer to show others how to accomplish tasks. Help another group plant their own garden. Build shelter for a family nearby. Show how you can be a valuable member of their social circle.
Attend GASP training sessions together: GASP offers a wide variety of training modules and preparedness seminars. Make it a social outing! Invite a group of not-yet-friends and attend a training seminar together. The skills you learn and the bonds you forge will last a lifetime.
Remember, we were all nearly victims of a global catastrophic event beyond human control. That doesn’t mean we can’t be friends! Who could you reach out to today to begin mending those severed social ties?
