Response to That is really so sweet..
We're in Oregon. The unemployment here is pretty significant. Have you ever seen the show Portlandia? You can Google it. There's a song called "Dream of the 90's" and one line says, "Portland...where 20 somethings go to retire". Seriously, the coffee shops are packed with 20-somethings without jobs. It is crazy how many people here don't have jobs but are piecing something together just to survive. On the plus side, it forces people to get very creative and there are some amazing goods and services that pop up due to this. There is also a great deal of trade, swap, etc., which builds community in a very meaningful way.
