Raleigh, NC - “From my favorite spot on the floor,” Anne Frank wrote in her diary 70 years ago, “I look up at the blue sky and the bare chestnut tree on whose branches little rain drops shine, appearing like silver, and at the sea gulls and other birds as they glide on the wind….I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

I recently joined a dozen unemployed North Carolinians at Wake Technical Community College to discuss the state of our economic recovery.
