Tonight I attended the Town Hall for Hope, a simulcast from Oklahoma City that over 1 million people watched at more than 6,000 locations - not including on radio stations or on the Fox Business Channel.
It focused on dispelling some of the myths behind the current recession and economy and was very informative and entertaining. It was presented by Dave Ramsey, whom Kristi and I have really come to like in the past several months after attending a Financial Peace University class at our church.
Kristi originally planned on attending with me, but couldn't because she's still in Houston with her mom. And we also have some friends who wanted to go, but couldn't. So I recorded the event on my iPhone and am presenting it here so Kristi, our friends who wanted to go but couldn't or anyone else who wants to hear it can listen.
It was a free event, open to anyone, so I feel pretty comfortable in posting it here. It also looks like they're going to post the event to watch at townhallforhope.com, so watch that space if you want more than just the audio.
Overall, it was a very good presentation that explained a lot about the economy, gave some good background information and most importantly, gave a little perspective. I highly recommend downloading the audio and listening. It's an hour and a half, so grab some popcorn and enjoy.
