Laura Peach has a good message at Silence is Broken that talks about the economy and brands of goods we purchase. I thought it was so good that I would write a piece on it as well, as it is a good reminder. Be sure and visit her site and read what she has written.
We worry about the economy and the way it is going. We are seeing government spending, spending, spending and wondering how in the world this is going to fix our economy. Well there is something we can be doing to keep Americans in work. That is by buying USA made products. I'm guilty of just grabbing products and not paying attention to where they have been made. Do you realize how many things offered to consumers are made in foriegn countries? Now I know we need one another and we need to support other countries as well, as that's what America is about, caring for all!
But...we also need to be supporting our own country. So from now on, check the lables, see where he products were made, make a sacrifice, give up that name brand you love so much and buy made in America/USA products. Let's start supporting our own country better and keep American's in jobs. We need to do our part and not just rely on government to fix it all, as that obviously is not going to happen.
So United We Stand, In God We Trust! Make an Impact, support your country. I for one am going to be a much better consumer and watch what I buy.
May the Lord Bless each and everyone of you. Make a ripple and watch it grow, and grow, and grow. Make an Impact in everyday life. And don't forget to P.U.S.H.
Love you all!
