You can Survive..
3 Minutes without air / 3 Minutes with Severe Bleeding
3 hours without shelter (In extreme conditions like a snow storm or intense desert heat)
3 Days without Water
3 Weeks wothout Food
The Kim family had very little food.. But they had air, no injuries, shelter in the car, snow to melt for water.. They could have easily survived another 2 weeks. Fact of the matter is, if he had been even resonably prepared, or had one clue about what he was doing, James Kim would still be alive.
He saw himself as a Hero, going out to bring help, and save the day! Heroics and Bravado like that are what killed him, not the snow.
They had the right idea.. They had road flares, they were burning tires. How tough would it have been to grab some tree limbs, build up the fire, and wait? Melt snow in the Aluminum cans they had, and JUST FREAKIN WAIT!!!
**Putting soapbox away**
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
December 8th, 1941 to Congress
From the Navy Archives..
"On that fateful day, the Japanese Navy secretly sent aircraft over Oahu in two massive waves. Of 96 warships present in Pearl Harbor, 18 of the major ones were sunk or damaged.."
DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY -- NAVAL HISTORICAL CENTER
Let's all remember the Hero's who gave their lives that day, and everyday after, so that we could enjoy OUR freedom.
"No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.
I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.
With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph -- so help us God."
This is how FDR ended his speech to Congress. Still fitting today.
Our Boys and Girls are still fighting the good fight "Over There". Have you said "Thanks" to a Soldier, Airman, Marine, Sailor or Coast Guardsman lately?
"For Those on Eternal Patrol.. Thank You, We will NEVER Forget.."

Admit you are stuck.. Wait for help.. Eat the 6 month old McDonald's french fries stuck under the seat..
My heart goes out to the Kim Family in this time of loss..
My admiration goes out to my Brothers and Sisters in the SAR Teams that worked so hard.. You did an OUTSTANDING job guys!
