My View #143 - The Desperate Hours (The Great Recession)

The desperate hours have arrived. I have been watching the change in the world exchanges the last few years and have been fearful of what is happening now. I lived through and remember this happening in 1929, as I was only 16 years old, the feelings and newspapers are the same. Money, food, jobs, all happy thinking suspended, and worry rules the world.

Even the weather has turned against us, at the moment, and all we can do is keep in touch with all your loved ones, help them if you can, and be prepared, things will be worse before they get better. Pray to God that this getting better will happen sooner than we expect and will help everyone recover.

I didn't expect to live through those hard, hard times again. Seven years of drought, homes lost and people under severe stress, hope lost.

Be grateful for what you have. XXX

Personally, I'm grateful that the Great Recession, bad as it was, was nowhere near as destructive as the Great Depression. Did we learn anything from it? I'm not sure.
