IWSG and Happy Fourth of July!!!

ISWG: Taking some time off to celebrate our Independence, I reflect on current events and see a nation divided more than it has ever been in generations. Combine this with massive borrowing and spending that we simply cannot come close to affording or sustaining, and it's easy to see an implosion that we may not be able to come back from.

But Fear Not: This may not be as bad as it seems. Some believe a country will not have to be a Super Power to be super in the near future. In fact, the playing field may become much more level and our kids and grand kids could grow up in a world where, because of technology becoming more readily available in a world with shrinking borders, anyone just about anywhere can achieve above average financial, educational, and health standards regardless of their environment. But this is a blog for another day.

Summer Guests: I hope you join me Monday July 8th as I host my second guest blogger of the summer. Writer Lori Nelson Spielman, author of THE LIFE LIST, discusses one of my favorite topics: Perseverence.  

Julie Flanders: Signed a contract for her second novel The Ghosts of Aquinnah. Congrats! Julie. 

New Blogfest: Mia Ferrera is heading up the Always Do Something That Scares You Blogfest Wednesday July 10th. Still plenty of time to sign up!

Happy Fourth of July Everyone! Let's come together regardless of our race, religion, or political affiliation and celebrate the day we received or independence!
