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.
