America is still a land that a person at any level in life could rise to the top. I must admit I feel like we are overregulated as a country which would spawn entrepreneurship if officials would lighten up. Everybody deserves a chance to do something they love.
My father farmed until the day he died. Cannot imagine him going out any other way, and I salute God for calling him home when he could still work. I hope I can live a long life and continue to do what I love all the way through it.
I wonder if the rise in both physical and mental illness currently sweeping the nation is from people unable to do work they love. Not having a job to go work at, enjoy, and feel like making a contribution to the world. With insurance costs sky rocketing as well as everything else (food, shelter, gas), people are taking jobs they may not like just to make ends meet.
Even doing something they enjoy on the side is too much due to all the stress they are under.
My hope for this nation in the future is for the regulation would be lessened, economy would get better, and people would be able to follow their dreams. Make a living at something they love to do.
