Don't let money fool ya

Our nation's crippled economy has many Americans worried about where their next paycheck will come from. Many adults with mortgages and other expenses like electric bills, gas bills, insurance bills, car notes, cable bills, water bills, food bills, real estate taxes, credit card bills and more are very, very concerned. Times are so hard that some adults have resorted to drastic measures.

On the other hand, many young people feel that the nation's failing economy is "grown folks business" and doesn't affect them. Most high school students are oblivious to the nation's economic crisis and could care less. But what if school were to end today? All schools - high schools, trade schools, colleges and universities. What if, tomorrow, you woke up and all schools were closed forever?

If that were the case, then given what you've learned over your ?? years of schooling and given what you've learned outside of the classroom, what would you do - better yet, what could you do tomorrow, with your mind and with your hands, to make a living and keep your head above water?
