In the past couple weeks I have watched several people I greatly respect and admire lose their jobs. As upsetting as it is to watch newspapers like The Rocky Mountain News close, it makes me much sadder when those effected are people I really care about and know personally. The thing that sticks with me the most is that in the midst of it all they still are hopeful. Hopeful that these changes will work out the best for them and that they will triumph because of their work and their attitudes. I find these perspectives inspiring and the best antidote for all of the bad news that is out there.

For every sad story that you find of someone losing their job and unable to keep it all from falling apart, there are stories of people picking up the pieces and putting it all back together. Maybe it doesn't look quite the same but they believe it will look brighter. It might even look like something that wasn't possible before.
