Keep Calm and Carry On

In 1939, with war inevitable, the British government commissioned a series of morale-boosting posters. One included the slogan: Keep Calm and Carry On.
Now a British company has reprinted the slogan on posters, t-shirts, etc., to match the tone for our challenging times. And the slogan is resonating globally.

Yes, Keep Calm and Carry On. It says it all, really.

We see events that are outside our control. We can’t change the big things. But we can change our own lives and not buy into the big chill. Why worry? It will all work out. Every recession comes to an end. We know that. So rather than buying into this doom and gloom, how about reflecting on the positives in our lives?

Most of us have our health. Most have jobs. We all have friends, family. The important things haven’t changed. We have roofs over our heads. We are not starving. We live in a marvelous country. If you’re in doubt, compare our lot with those living in Africa and the Middle East.
