The economic crisis is on our minds and the effects are felt on our wallets. The level of crime is more than a bit worrisome, I agree. But there is something in that glass. It may not seem half full (in some cases), but it’s definitely not empty! For some of us, it’s actually ¾ full, but we continue to lament that ¼. We all need to remember that somewhere, someone has it harder than we do. A little optimism can sometimes make the day a whole lot better!
