This post is very special to me. I live in one of the areas of the country with the highest unemployment rates. I know many, many, many people that lost their jobs due to the economy in the last few years…and there just aren’t any new jobs in our area to be had. See, we live in carpet country. Most everyone here works in a carpet mill or is indirectly employed because of the carpet mills. So when the economy took a down-turn, people quit buying and building houses. No one needed carpet. When that happened the lay-offs started. Then because of all the lay-offs and no one having money, the stores suffered and started closing. It just spiraled down-ward from there to the point that even our hospital is getting ready to close. So, please…read the rest of this post. And Show Your Helping Hand.
