Today's question is simple and yet probably complicated in more ways than a lot of people will ever know ...
How has the current global economic situation affected you or someone you know?
I know we here in America like to cry about the way our economy has most definitely gone down the tubes but in doing so, I think we tend to forget that there are a lot of other nations and people out there who are suffering just as much - if not more - than we are.
I, personally, know of at least two people who have been laid off due to the companies they work for downsizing and neither one of them have been able to find work since being laid off. You have no idea how thankful I am to have a job that I know is secure so even though I still can't make ends meet, at least I can get them closer than those people who have no job.
So now ... over to you!
