There is more behind the name SAFE. It stands for “Safe America for Everyone”. This meant his home, shelter, and heart were open to everyone, regardless of religion, color, gender, or beliefs.
Bruce said that he was an optimist when it came to mankind, however, he couldn’t help being a pessimist when it came to the near future. He knew a disaster was just around the corner, but he felt it would be an opportunity to change our ways significantly.
It Was Only a Matter of Time
Bruce was a true believer in the occurrence of a third world war. He was certain sooner or later something would hit home. He had a rich history in the US air force, and he had great knowledge of computer science.
There was no way anyone could tell him otherwise, however, he found it almost impossible to try to convince the authorities about the future awaiting them all. He was ready to take his project even another step forward.
It Could Only Go His Way
Bruce once said, "I used to always say the end of the world was going to be two years from now, but now I say it is going to be two weeks from now — and if I am wrong, I will revise my date." He was determined and decisive.
He was now ready for the next step. He ran an online "reconstruction network" and he named it SAFE. He voluntarily shared relevant information about his project "Ark Two" and his evacuation plans.
They Would All Benefit
He believed a better, healthier, and more stable society would be born out of the chaos. A more open-minded and more accepting society.
Everything had a reason, and whatever was planned to hit them had reasoning too. Something good had to come out of it and he wanted to get people thinking and reordering their priorities in life.
The World Thought Otherwise
Bruce was so enthusiastic about his plans, however, the world had its own plans too. He sadly passed away at the age of 87, way before the world came to an end. He was a great believer in unity and harmony but he forgot one important thing.
He spent almost half of his life preparing for the future while neglecting the present and all it had to offer. Today, his wife and family are left wondering what would have happened if only Bruce's plans would have really come true.
