Recently I was thinking about the Great Recession, which is not unusual for me, and realized that some day, years from now, it will end. Then, I thought, I can get beyond it, get it out of my mind . . .
. . and I realized I was looking forward to forgetting about the Great Recession. I was looking forward to the days I was no longer worrying about my friends and their jobs. I was looking forward to no longer analyzing the impacts of these terrible times on our economy, our psychology, and our souls. I was looking forward to forgetting.
I realized then and there, I was wrong. I should not forget it. Ever.
Neither should you and yours, neither should anyone.
