 guarantees and had to take risk to live here . Those who boarded ships to sail here ,

 knew that 10-20% would not survive the trip . But they came . Once they arrived,

 many decided to settle in some of the most dangerous parts of the Western territories.

 They slept with their guns , knowing they could be subject to hostile attack at any 

 moment . But still they came ! 

     They came for opportunity , and greater freedoms than they had experienced in 

 Europe (and other parts of the world ) . Clearly they knew that they were risking 

 their lives and of their families to pursue settlement in America . But they came !

 At any time did they have Fear ? Of course they did ! But many also had Faith .

 They had vision and purpose . All throughout American History , our Country

Thanks for writing this blog post. All I can say is, we must keep the faith and ask for blessings on all those on the frontline and behind the scenes working on a cure, a vaccine, the how to, consoling loved ones, protection on doctors, nurses, etc., etc., etc.

Having come to America as an immigrant I have come to understand many of the terms of the modern entrepreneur, boot-strapping, begin over, slow and steady. But, where there is a dream, and a will as has been said, one may have to adjust the sails and move the rudder, but the destination can be reached.

The American Dream will persist, and while current conditions may keep some from buying or selling others will forge ahead. Our current market is evidence of that.

The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. This year, 2020, is the 400th anniversary of their arrival aboard the Mayflower.  I hope by Thanksgiving the pandemic situation will be much improved and we will give thanks for what we have and for what we have learned.

The website for the anniversary is at https://www.plymouth400inc.org/

Fearless people learn to adapt to their challenges because they are confident, persistent and willing to make sacrifices to achieve their goals and objectives. Fearless people are self reliant and driven by their accomplishments, one step at a time.

It's a fact that 90% of all millionaires achieved their wealth from real estate, so, it takes courage to buy real estate, therefore, IMO,  there will always be a market for real estate.

Fear often replaces common sense and it is sad to see.  When I hear people talk these days it is easier to believe they are lying than telling the truth, haha.
