Its been a turbulent time here in the US for several years now.
Last night’s Presidential speech sparked so much debate about JOBS, WORK and the US economy, that its hard to keep up with the rhetoric.
In that light, I found this video clip of VP Biden and House Speaker John Boehner chatting up their golf game before hand to be strangely comforting that these are still just men with a job to do:
Not to make light of the economic catastrophe that the US in, but nice to see divided parties are still somewhat human in this whole mess.
I, for one, have felt EVERY effect of the stock market crash, mortgage failures and the slowing ( to a screeching halt) economy.
That said, I am thankful for so many things, including the freedom to write here from the comfort of my mac, with lights warmth and candor. All made possible by our men and women who fight the world’s injustices for our freedom.
Never shall we forget the first responders, mere mortals and powers that be who work diligently to keep our country safe.
In honor of those who have fallen, I give you a few local happenings in which you may go an commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
