The global recession has played a massive part in my family's life. We are currently struggling to put the house on the market, will soon be facing foreclosure if unable to do so, and have had to sell many of our personal belongings. My father lost his job and is finally climbing back up the corporate ladder. My mom is a professional artist and photographer, and she's having trouble finding business. Everything appears to be falling apart around us, but no worries. It'll all work out in the end, this I'm sure of.
