Strength: Rickey C. Cooper

Rickeycooper Strength,  

After hearing about this morning's plane crash into the IRS Building in Austin, Texas I had to respond. 

Wow O Wow I am encouraging each and everyone of us to stay strong and focused during these desperate times. 

We must develop this network of strong minds to help us keep our sanity until a potential JOB arrives. 

Please accept Jesus Christ into your life and pray daily for strength and yes sir/man one day employment will come. 

I am continuing to submit jobs on-line and attend job fairs with minimal results. 

I will not let that deter me in obtaining employment in the future and I challenge you to stay strong and focused as myself.
