What a reminder - we forget too easily, from the stance of the comfort and blessings we so easily enjoy. Thank you for this beautiful descriptive writing.

You've captured so well the feeling of the Great Depression. Unfortunately, we are currently facing some of the same economic and troubling times today.

Concise portrait of the despondency which changed us forever. Should be required reading in every school. . .but there's a good chance history will repeat. God help us all! Excellent writing!
