Murphy wrote a blog on March 9, 2009, that I'd like to commend him for.
His was an upbeat, positive outlook on the current
recession/depression. His final words were: "It's cruel and it's hard. But it also raises the value of a few things - like friends you can depend on, the importance of staying healthy and appreciating the simple goodness of home-cooked meals. Our generation will get through this, together. Just like our parents got through the Great Depression. "
Yes, Tom, we will get through this. And, if we allow ourselves, we will
be better individuals because of it. Bravo!
