Living in Historic Times

Yes, we’ve heard (and some have experienced) the awful stories of lost jobs, defaulted loans, foreclosed houses, and people struggling to make ends meet. There are whispers comparing the current state of the economy to the Great Depression and the recession of the 1970s.

But if there’s even a hint of a silver lining to this whole mess, it’s that we are living in historic times. We’ll be able to tell our children of the dark times that were the late-00s. And its how we weather this difficult period that will be written into the history books of the future.
