Harsh reality

We make a conscious effort to be positive on this blog: happy faces like Jakson's in the last post and accomplishments in all areas especially academic and sports.  But there are days when smiling does not come easy and today was such a day.  The managers and I had to announce the lay-off of thirty more employees this morning due to budget constraints.  All those who received notice have family responsibilities like children in school or relatives dependent on them for help.  Unemployment is over 50% here in the south so the likelihood of finding another job is pretty dismal.
Please join me in praying for these people and their families.  Thanks.
