Every once in a while you come across an article, post, or tweet that says precisely what needs to be said at that moment in time. Our nation is in turmoil, still, and the popular response—at least currently—is what we are calling Occupy Wall Street. I understand the sentiment. But those holding the giant signs and shouting the pithy lines might want to consider the words of well-known radio host Dave Ramsey who wrote the following letter yesterday, which he calls “Dear Occupy Wall Street.” I’ll defer this post to his wise insights and encourage you to read them, especially his conclusions at the end of the letter.
As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on not only the letter above but also the situation in general. I am listening.
