TownHall for Hope by dave Ramsey

I attended the Town Hall for Hope Webcast at Celebration Church last night. Dave did an excellent job of exposing the hype behind the current economic situation. He also was very encouraging and yet at the same time demanding that we individually are the solution to the problem and not the government.
A great deal of misinformation is being peddled as fact and Dave also did a great job of dispelling those errors.
Bottom line as I see it:
It's not the end of the world. This is not as bad as the great depression, no where close even. This is not even the worst recession we have had. Nor the worst inflation or unemployment figures. Anyone telling you that is just not speaking the truth and do they have an agenda? Capitolism works but only if people, companies, banks, are allowed to fail. Failure is not a bad thing. There is a great place to go if you are broke - to work. And even if you don't have a job right now get your sorry rear off the couch and go do something for someone else. Contribute, give, serve, it is not all about you.

CoolCat Teacher

I met the most amazing teacher today in Camilla Georgia. Vicki Davis aka coolcatteacher - is a teacher at Westwood Schools in Camilla Georgia. We also met some great kids who are doing some amazing things on the internet. So I have been inspired to finally get off my rear and begin my own blog so today marks that event for me. It is so refreshing to meet a teacher who 'gets it'. Technology is our friend it can connect us to the rest of the world and that can change peoples lives forever in a positive way.

I am truly looking forward to supporting this cool cat teacher's efforts in making a difference in many young adults lives. And I look forward to seeing the creations of kids who are using the internet to communicate their ideas, feelings and dreams.

My desire is that this becomes infectious and more and more high schools encourage their students to connect with the world and make a difference.

Let's change the world!

I wonder if this is how it all begins

I am not quite sure what is meant by ALL, But no matter what ALL is it must begin somewhere so here is as good a place as any.
