I try and remain an optimist inspite of all the current news lately. Yes, the U.S. and the world is going through some changes (again) but ,overall I think we will persevere. For the last 2 1/2 years, people seemed to have hunkered down and been kind of conservative with their money. Lately in my own portion of the USA, I see people starting to go out and enjoy fishing and boating again. I think people around here anyway are feeling a bit better about the economy and wish to go out and have some fun for a change.
I think at any time you choose to look, you will find those who talk of doom and gloom. I remember the turmoil of the sixties and how everyone thought the U.S. would succumb to anarchy, nationwide race riots, the Bomb and the rest of the Blah,blah,blah....
We came out of the sixties stronger, better, wiser, and perhaps a bit more humble.
Here again is another challenge and we will again rise up to meet it. I think if we didnt have these tests of our spirit, life would become a bit dull and we would take thing too much for granted.
