I recently saw the results of a nationwide survey ( the 50 states of the United States). It was about who were the happiest people in the country and the unhappiest. Here are some of the results. I think you will find it interesting.
The number one and two states as far as happiness goes were #1 Louisiana and #2 Hawaii.
It seems Louisiana has New Orleans and maybe the people in the state enjoy liquid libations. Maybe the people of Louisiana just love to have a good time.
Hawaii is like a paradise and who wouldn't love to live there, even though it is quite expensive. The climate is wonderful.
The most unhappy people were in #50 New York and #49 Connecticut. Could it have something to do with all the taxes? It seems both states have found just about every way to take money from the taxpayers. Sometimes it seems like we work for the government. What about the climate? Could someone have a better life elsewhere?
Even with all the problems we have, they don't compare to the problems the people are experiencing in other parts of the world. Think of Haiti. Think of the earth quakes, floods, food shortages and so forth that are happening everywhere. We have it good compared to other places. We should be thankful for what we have. What do you think?
