					Not too long ago, only a limited number of people knew what American teotwawki
meant. Today however, with economic instability and soaring prices combined with
unpredictably severe weather "the end of the world as we know it," or "teotwawki",
has taken on a new meaning. Economic
  Foreclosures were once rare but in the past few years, they have skyrocketed. People
who were forced to give up their homes or go hungry have experienced American
teotwawki first hand. Unemployment is also at an all time high. Loosing a job can
mean loosing everything for which a person has worked. Their car, apartment or
house and their self-esteem can disappear overnight. For people in this type of a
situation the world as they knew it has ended. Stocking up on a week or two of food,
keeping a bit of money on hand and trying to avoid using credit cards may help
protect against economic teotwawki. Natural Disasters
  Anyone who saw the images on television after Hurricane Katrina slammed through
Louisiana understands how quickly life can change. Earthquakes in areas that have
never experienced them before like the recent earthquake in Haiti, left hundreds of
thousands in a teotwawki situation. Wildfires have caused devastation around the
globe due to changing weather patterns. California and Colorado are two places where
an American teotwawki event was caused by uncontrollable wildfires. Russia has
stopped exporting grain due to low harvests and raging wildfires. Flooding can also
cause teotwawki. The east coast had an American teotwawki experience when heavy
rains fell this spring and flooded areas that to date had never flooded before.
  Religious Opinions
  American teotwawki believers can be found in all religions. For Christians the
severe weather, earthquake activity and famines may be signaling the "End of Days."
Native Americans have their own legends about how the world as we know it will
occur. Most cultures have their variation of an end of the world legend or myth.
Prophecies about teotwawki have outlasted some civilizations. Nostradamus and
Edgar Cayce both made prophecies about how the world would end. When one
compares the many different cultures and religions that feel that the world as we know
it will end, it is easy to see why people are concerned. Preparing for a serious disaster
is prudent. Preparing for a life- altering event does not cause teotwawki to occur.
Movies
  Hollywood is quick to take advantage of peoples concerns and fears. In the past few
years, many movies about American teotwawki have been produced. The Book of Eli
tells the story of a man in post-apocalyptic America, 2012 tells the story of an
American family who manages to survive a planet changing event and The Road tells
the story of how one man takes his only son across America after an apocalyptic event.
Television series like Survivor Man, Life after People and Man versus Wild may be
trying to tell people something. It is almost enough to cause one to consider that the
people in power may know something that the rest of us do not.
  Regardless of which, or if, an American teotwawki may occur, stocking up on foods,
over the counter medicines and learning practical skills may prepare you for any type
of life altering event. Learning to garden can prevent someone from going hungry,
learning how to sew may save money or learning to can food at home may provide
just enough to help you survive your own teotwawki event.
