Thanks to Sheila Moran of RE/MAX Access in San Antonio, TX, for this great post - and for allowing me to re-blog it. I definitely choose not to participate in this recession - how about you?

Recession 101: What if nobody participated?
Driving along a cut away street on the North East side of San Antonio I curiously came across these billboards.
I couldn't believe my eyes and stopped the car and photographed each and every one. I'm sure I was a spectacle to the cars driving by. I hope the billboards were also a spectacle.
I was so pleased that someone was out there putting positive words out to the masses.
It was then that I read the story of how these billboards came to be. An anonymous donor wanted to remind Americans to collectively "take a deep breath". Have you ever heard of such a thing? Not me. Do I like it and appreciate it? You bet.
The entire campaign is geared to raising Americans spirits and lift them up according to the website: www.recession101.org or you can catch them on twitter: twitter.com/recession101
I tell you that morning there was nothing better than seeing these uplifting words "up in the sky".
To anonymous donor, I thank you. I'm sure many Americans would also give a "collective" sigh of relief too.
Either we participate or we don't.
