We are going to make it through these times.
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 10:07 PM by originalpckelly
We will struggle, there will be hardship, but in the long run we will be a stronger and better nation. As a nation we can overcome anything with our ingenuity. This is the time become hopeful yet again. Put hope and ingenuity together and you have the cause of the best events in the 20th century. Nothing has changed so much in this century that the two are worthless and won't work.

There are so many wonderful possibilities and so many things we take for granted. We have so many blessings and we miss them. How grateful we should be that we can still walk to a store that has food on the shelves to buy. In some places around the globe, this is not a reality. For us, it is the mundane.

We are immensely lucky to be Americans. We should be grateful tonight.

This count your blessings post brought to you by someone going through hardship, someone looking for light at the end of the tunnel. I've found it, will you find it too?

1. That's a good point.
Occasionally I try to think about what life is like on the Gaza Strip, Baghdad, Sudan or wherever. There is much to be grateful for here and I am glad I won the birth lottery.............. :toast:
