I recently wrote an article for Veritas Magazine dealing with the lost hope that people are feeling as they search for a job. These are definitely tough and unprecedented times, but we can still choose how our attitude will be when facing the unknown. And while hope may seem far off, it is actually as close as it as ever been.
I think it safe to say that these are some of the most difficult times ever faced for a lot of generations. As a Gen Xer, I know my generation has never seen such difficult times as these. The news seems to be getting worse every day, and every hopeful sign turns out to be a house of cards.
People have lost jobs at a historic rate and have lost confidence in everything that they had once thought was sure.
