While PULSE is a work of fiction, the possibility that the United States could sustain a catastrophe (such as an EMP or terrorist attack) that could take down the electric grid is a very real one. L.R. wrote PULSE as a wake-up call, primarily to the Church, but also to anyone who will listen. Like Lexie's family in the book, it is possible to prepare for such an event. And you don't have to live on a farm. For information on how to prepare for a large-scale disaster, check out the following blogs. **
