Keep pushing.

Despite the announcement that the unemployment rate dropped to 9.1 percent, I'm still scared out of my mind. 

If you're one of the folks looking for work, don't lose hope.  If you've got a job but are getting squeezed by an employer that knows it's hard out there, keep plugging away.  (Even if you have to shovel sh*t a paycheck's a paycheck.  I don't think there's any disrespect in that.)  If you've got a good job and your employer still treats you well, count your blessings.

Keep pushing.
