We are looking at a new era of our existence. It's as if things are getting worse financially. So many families have lost their homes, savings and even jobs which makes for a dire future. Children aren't able to have things they need and the parents are at their rows end. What once was a bright future is now a dull memory. I often wonder how long America can last with the economic slump we are in? It's not easy when you want to do right and all roads to help are blocked off.
