.This is one anniversary few feel like celebrating.
Two years after economists say the Great Recession ended, the recovery has been the weakest and most lopsided of any since the 1930s.
After previous recessions, people in all income groups tended to benefit. This time, ordinary Americans are struggling with job insecurity, too much debt and pay raises that haven't kept up with prices at the grocery store and gas station. The economy's meager gains are going mostly to the wealthiest.
Were not even on Fun Unemployment anymore! At least in 2008, we had some income.

Sadly, no we don't have incomes. I remember thinking in 2008 that I was worried, being as the economists predicted this would be a long one and a bad one. I never thought three years later that here we would all be, and totally abandoned by the Government in addition to having no real possibility of a job. I thought the pressure I felt then was awful, I had no idea how awful that pressure would get for all of us. I can only say I am truly greatful for all of the friends I have met here and that we still have one another. Whether we all agree or not, we have each other to understand what we truly feel, as no one else does. So, even though we have little to celebrate, I truly celebrate each of our members, as we have stayed together for one another and did our best to help each other in any way we could.
