as we all know, we are facing an economic crisis in which thousands of jobs are lost and many more face endangerment of losing their jobs. there has been increases in robberies, suicides, etc over the past year ive also been noticing everyone is recycling their bottles instead of tossing them away as they once use to. there has been more people in my school collecting bottles and cans after school. what else have you noticed in society's behavior, no necessarily your behavior?

With this recession going on, there is a lot of changes I have noticed many people having to make. I know a lot of people are having to choose between keeping their meds up, or groceries, many people are driving less, and their is more penny pinching all around for sure. I know that when it comes to cutting back since so many people are continuing to loose jobs, etc. it is an important thing to do. For anyone not being impounded by this Economy I would wonder how.

I'm 61 and have been through a couple of rough ones. I've noticed an increase in public transportation usage and more older people on bicycles. Unfortunately, this will pass and America will go back to it's greedy ways again, you can bet on it! tdemex
