Another one gone

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?

I'm sorry this is happening to your town. I can totally relate. The steel mill my hubby works at is always rumored to be closing soon, and it makes me nervous almost every day. I pray all the time that this economy changes. Hang in there!!
