The longer you are unemployed, the more difficult it is for you to get employed. That’s it. This was known earlier but is underscored once again as there seems to be no big turn around in the US employment scene. An article in the New York Times speaks of many who are being pushed into the category of ‘long term” unemployed, for six months or more, due to the passage of time.
Of course there will be difficulties in life. There can never be life without its share of problems. Many of these problems can be traced back to actions of people- including ourselves. Yet, the answer to problems doesn’t lie in running away from them. Worst of all, you have no right to end the lives of others because of your problems. These are my thoughts when I read about the shocking murder-suicide at Los Angeles recently.
