Fill in the blank.

All humans have _______________ potential.

Typical answers are unlimited, infinite, boundless, incredible. However, when most answer this simple question, there is a hidden parenthesis … (except me).

Why would you value yourself less than you value others? You are a human, aren’t you? What would make you “less than” everyone else?

Now, you have many roles you play in your daily life. In some roles you excel, in others… maybe not so much. Some of you may be maximizing your potential at work, but are struggling in love. Some of you may be doing well in love, but you struggle with your health.

Wherever you feel you are “less than” able to maximize your potential, what’s holding you back?

You CAN maximize your potential! Sometimes, you just need a little help.

If you or someone you know isn’t getting the help they need, all you need to do is ask.

No matter who you ask, you must maximize your God-given potential!

Call, email, text. Get help for you to help yourself.

All you need to do is ask.

IAVA and some other veteran support organizations have been championing this cause for quite some time now.  It’s awesome to see it finally make it to the President’s desk.  Let hope it makes it through Congress and starts making a difference in our Veterans’ lives.  While the nation’s unemployment rate sits around 9%, these heroes are struggling with at rate over 30% higher.  Vets who served in the Middle East since 9/11 are experiencing over a 12% unemployment rate.

Please don’t wait for the government to do something.  Hire a vet, now!

What is wrong with the priorities in this country?  You have to read this article in the Army Times about the DoD and the Veterans Jobs Bill? It’s unbelievable what our fellow vets are having to deal with after returning from the Middle East regarding getting a job in civilian life.

Then, you look at the Veteran Employment status, which is still unacceptable!

WOW! We have to do more, NOW!

The year over year Unemployment rate for Gulf War-era II veterans rose 2% in May making me wonder if last month was a fluke.  When you compare it to the Nonveteran numbers, it’s now 42% over the Nonveterans rate.

For yet another month, when we compare where the rates are for Gulf War-era II veterans to all the others in this report, the news gets even worse! The Gulf War-era II veterans, and in particular MEN who served in the Middle East after 9/11, are the only status categories STILL in the double digits!

Veteran Employment status still unacceptable!

WOW! We’re making progress, but we have to do more, NOW!

The fact that the year over year Unemployment rate for Gulf War-era II veterans dropped just over 2% in April is a great thing. However, when you compare it to the Nonveteran numbers, it’s still 28% over the Nonveterans rate.

When we compare where the rates are for Gulf War-era II veterans to all the others in this report, the news gets even worse! The Gulf War-era II veterans, and in particular MEN who served in the Middle East after 9/11, are the only status categories STILL in the double digits!

U.S. homebuilder sentiment slipped a notch in April as home prices continued to fall in most areas of the country amid widespread foreclosures, a survey said Monday.

Read Full Story Here…

 

So with all these foreclosures, how do we get people back living in them again?  I say we get them in the hands of investors who can get them back to a livable state and sell them to a needing homebuyer or rent them to people who need housing.  If only the lenders were actually interested in helping their communities instead of just themselves.
