Feeling Sad

Yeah, so it’s been quite a while since I last posted and I’m sorry about that but life has kept me busy. That and, once again, I hadn’t been inspired to write until the events of today and those leading up to it. I’m not sure I have fully grasped all that there is to but what I do know is that how I’m currently feeling is a result of it, if that makes any sense.

Let me start with the economy and I really don’t know who or what to blame for that. I don’t think you can pinpoint a person or entity to blame, not in this case anyway because in reality it’s all of us. Those of us that spend, spend, spend with no concept of save, save, save. Those of us who ask for credit but truly don’t have much to back it up with. Those who provide the credit but don’t really look at the risk involved in doing so for that one person, that one family, that business. We could blame the banks, the government, or legislators, all of the above. So, really, there is no one person to blame. Yet, something’s gotta give. The financial squeeze we are in has got to be fixed. The thing is, if it’s not, the rest of this is just part of the “snowball effect.”

In my daily job, what happens with the economy directly impacts some of the people that I work with in the sense that media…or the more specifically, the news media…is changing. It’s not like it used to be – people don’t get home at 6pm “just in time to watch the news” and some don’t wait with bated breath for the newspaper boy to deliver the newspaper any more (do they still have “newspaper boys”?). There are still some folks out there who do what they always did but times are a changin’. Just look at how fast the internet can provide you the information you need!

Anyway, my point – the economy is horrible. It is. Let’s face it. Times are tough and I really don’t know where I’m going with this except to say that the economy is impacting my life and my friend’s lives. It’s not fair and that saddens me. People everywhere are losing their jobs, it seems. In my lifetime, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the economy as bad…or at least perhaps I didn’t pay attention “the last time” it was.

Tonight, I’m sad and I’m praying for those that have come upon some tougher times than anticipated. May God Bless them and may God Bless us all always!
