I vascilate between ignoring and being totally obsessed with recent economic news. I am concerned, just like everyone else, but having survived my own economic downturn several years ago, I believe that we are prepared to ride out the storm. I also happen to live in a part of the country that is more stable than others though not immune.
But aside from all of that, the thing that really struck me most, was the report that people planned on donating more to charity this year. After the elections and having to listen to all the finger pointing and blaming, it is nice to see that the average person has a heart. It gives me hope.
