For me, I'm very much sheltered, I have almost no debt and I am in the military, so I'll pretty much always have a place for me and my family to
sleep and food to eat. My retirement account has taken quite the hit, though.
Now the rest of my family in TN are in a different position altogether. My mother has lost her home, been laid-off and is currently struggling to find
a job. My father is doing fine for now, but worries about his mortgage rising in the future. The gas shortage hasn't helped things, either. All in
all, I'm struggling to remain optimistic, but that's all we can ever do anyways, right?
