Amen, Margie! Great article and great comments from Alan Jennings. It's always easy to blame someone else for the economy tanking, but the real blame is not with those (like myself) who lost their jobs through no fault of their own—it's with Wall Street bankers and big greedy corporations sending jobs overseas for bountiful tax credits and other perks. While I was on unemployment, I got so sick of hearing how we 99ers were all a bunch of lazy drug addicts milking the hard-working taxpayers of their last dollar. Quite the contrary, I used the time to go back to college and earn my master's degree, although as of yet it has not helped me land a full time job. I currently work two part time jobs that don't equal half of my salary at my last job and I'm quickly draining my retirement account in order to pay the monthly bills. But I refuse to stop giving to local charities that do so much to help everyone who is struggling to make it in this economy. There will always be someone who is worse off than I am. I hope everyone who reads this article realizes the many blessings they have been given and that their compassion will lead them to give, even a little, to those charities that are doing so much good in this world.

I adopted three cats from Forgotten Felines in 2004 and I couldn't be happier. I encourage everyone to remember to make a donation to the area's no-kill shelters, especially in this tough economic climate. FFF is a great organization and they really take good care of their feline charges.
