I almost felt like I was suffocating as I read this article in today's news. Early last year I posted this entry about all the factories that have shut their doors since I have moved here and the toll it was taking on the families of several of my students.
Even though I am not teaching anymore, my heart is aching for the 430 families who will be affected by this Shaw plant closing. I do not know what is going to be left for people by the time this recession ends. Will LaFayette become a ghost town?
