Recession,does history repeat again

by robina1978

Was my premonition from a few years ago right?
I already did not approve of the Euro so much.
Then I predicted the house market crash; we had been through it before.
When the recession started it reminded me almost immediately of the 1930's.
Not that difficult as history tends to repeat itself.
But nobody or not many seemed to share my view.
Now watching the news yesterday: stock markets crashing in United States, Europe and even Japan.
The analysts try and reassure us; but the politicians seem worried more and more.
Couple of years ago I started foreseeing soup kitchens, high unemployment and possibly world war III. Used to joke about it some times-not that often though.
Started asking my husband how our money could be best kept.
He also said: "Don't worry too much!"
Yesterday he did not know anymore.
Can we avoid watching the news? Do we hang on to our gold and silver?
I am so afraid , that the only answer is pray and pray.
Hope that might help.
Mind you : did not help then.
Hate my own premonitions or reasoning.
And I don't even think we can find one person to blame.
Please Lord: protect us all from this horrible fate.


Think a lot of people might feel the same. Let us pray together and try and keep hope.
