A friend posted a little blurb regarding those young people “our economy has left behind.” Immediately I remembered a Forbes article I had read several years ago, 2013 to be exact:
In a lifetime, the average person holds about 10 jobs across seven different careers, studies show. Of course, workers are more likely to switch jobs when they’re young and have no dependents, but one in five workers over 50 who are less than a decade away from retirement are contemplating career changes as well. ~ Rahul Mistry
And then I remembered an even earlier article by Alan Dunn, in 2012:
People who use their parents as a safety net with no greater financial goal in mind are doomed to never launch away from home; those who use it as a carefully-calculated stepping-stone to a more successful life are much more likely to launch successfully and stay independent. ~ Alan Dunn
Last night, as I looked up to my movie poster of MURPH, THE PROTECTOR, I thought how time has dimmed too many memories. How many people will remember the ultimate sacrifices from those difficult, tragic days?
Then today, as I pondered over the original notations from my friend that included more on the Americans For Prosperity tax reform plans when my thoughts went immediately to: Where is the talk of cutting spending, capping spending, and balancing the budget to go along with tax reform? Where are the demands to kill the #ObamacareTax nightmare? Where are the voices clamoring to get government out of our way?
In the background I had my Roku Player tuned into The Blaze television. Karen Vaughn was on the Glenn Beck Radio program. Karen could not have been a more well-timed guest. She helped me put things back into perspective when she said:
“…what I realized after Aaron died was, he gave his life for me, fighting a battle kinetically to protect and preserve the American way of life. Not a government. Not a piece of land. But a way of life.”
And here is where I end Part 1 of my thoughts for today: Take Back The Culture. Start by reading the interview from today.
