Stress is the classic ailment of the 21st century and accepted as part of our working lives. In fact, stress is generally perceived as a barometer of success. Dynamic professionals seem keen to publicise the fact that their lives are blighted by this modern anguish.

In contrast to socially acceptable moaning about minor stresses and strains, The Day I Snapped investigates what happens when the stress of working life causes a major meltdown. Linda, Elinor, Simon, Justin and Linn were pushed to the point where they were ready to ‘snap’. This is a very human account of what happens when anxiety gets too much to cope with. The story of a GP, a teacher, a social worker, a farmer and a businessman whose stress levels rendered them unable to function. How did the situation reach breaking point in the first place? How did they deal with it? How have their lives changed since?

The Washington Post has decided it doesn’t need to pretend to be neutral anymore, and wants to wade into the realm of political opinions… but only when it comes to Bernie Sanders. Challenging a Republican on what their deficit holes go to pay for is bad form. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“In what has to be some kind of record, the Washington Post ran 16 negative stories on Bernie Sanders in 16 hours, between roughly 10:20 PM EST Sunday, March 6, to 3:54 PM EST Monday, March 7—a window that includes the crucial Democratic debate in Flint, Michigan, and the next morning’s spin…

All of these posts paint his candidacy in a negative light, mainly by advancing the narrative that he’s a clueless white man incapable of winning over people of color or speaking to women. Even the one article about Sanders beating Trump implies this is somehow a surprise—despite the fact that Sanders consistently out-polls Hillary Clintonagainst the New York businessman.”*

Unemployment is the highest it’s been in three decades. The housing mortgage fiasco has contributed to the dramatic growth of homelessness. Tent cities across the United States are growing and are populated not only by the chronically homeless but also with educated and middle class citizens who have lost their jobs and/or lost their homes.

The number of homeless veterans is growing, too, with 200,000 currently “on the streets.” As the incidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is growing in recognition, treatment is not keeping up with the need. When these walking wounded return home from Iraq and Afghanistan, the stigma associated with PTSD as well as the lack of compassionate and therapeutic care abandons them to find their own way down a hopeless street. Many commit suicide. Others join the chronically homeless.

Reminiscent of the Great Depression and the era following the Vietnam War, the stories of America’s middle and working class and its returning veterans are resurfacing as exercises in frustration and defeat although the heart of America still beats with hope.

Like John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath and Travels with Charlie, and more recently like the stories of Charles Kerault, there are stories to be told about the American people who are daily struggling to live and re-establish their dreams. They are important stories to be told, not only to re-ignite compassion and understanding but, like post 911, to inspire America’s heart as a nation to work together in assuring a quick recovery to a state of greater strength, mutual support and decreased greed.

Books about the general concept of homelessness have been written such as the three-volume Homelessness in America, by Robert Hartmann McNamara, published in 2008. However, to my knowledge, no books have yet been published focusing on individual stories, especially from 2009. The dramatic increase in homelessness as a result of the economic recession is still too new.

You-Tube holds a great number of videos about tent cities and the subject of homelessness but does not chronicle the depth of each individual story. Print articles may appear in local papers, however only the result of homelessness is typically covered rather than the individual stories. When written with a constructive objective rather than simply reporting, these stories could help rebuild lives.

With regard to homeless veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes the issue but cannot keep up with the influx. According to National Adjutant Arthur H. Wilson, “We saw thousands of Vietnam veterans who ultimately became homeless, and we may be facing a new national crisis with the veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.” In 2006, one in four homeless were veterans. That number has climbed.

As the trend in increased unemployment and homelessness lags the projected economic recovery, there are many stories to be discovered and told in 2009. As this trend continues, the number of people who know or who have a degree of connection to the issue is dramatically increasing.

The current coverage of the issue of homelessness in connection with the economy takes national attention. Good Morning America has it AmeriCAN series to highlight people who are taking action to help others. Each day, snippets of stories are seen in the media. However, few are in depth.

The publication and distribution of a series of books can take an important step. It can record, in greater depth, these unseen and unheard stories of individuals who have experienced the worst and who survive. It can provide a written history giving their plight a sense of purpose by calling the nation together to help one another. In the end, hopefully, it will provide future generations inspiration and pride in their heritage rather than shame.

As a source of inspiration for future generations as well as a sobering history to ground the nation’s leaders in the reality experienced daily by the people, this book series is important. These stories can generate a timeless image of our nation by having not only the heart but also the courage to take action by finding and telling these stories.

There is a need for the nation to unite in a national movement to Employ The Unemployed. With the American people addressing the issue of unemployment head on, without waiting for legislation and political process, the economy will immediately improve.
