Its still affecting America

The Great Depression

Hello, i'm Jamez Astro Gypsy Vaders and I am living with my 6 children, my sister and husband in a little apartment. My husband works a little bit but getsvery low pay because of the depression that has recently hit America. Suddenly, there were no jobs. The banks closed. Stores closed. Its too hard to live with no money, no food and no water. We can barely survive! I wish the government would help out more.

My children are hungry and my sister has heart disease and we can't pay for the medicine that tastes bad. My 2 sons might have pneumonia and my 4 daughters are trying to help out and trying to find jobs to help pay off the bills but there are no job openings anywhere in this city. People fight over bread!

My husband is having less and less money every time he comes home after work and it is harder each day to live this way. I am glad he has this small job as many have none.

The Great Depression

The Great Depression

Before the Depression we didn't have much as our family has been poor from the start. Small jobs were available. People lived happily and wanted to help one another. Now, they are selfish. If we all could just help each other we could get through this. We could share our food and clothes and heat our homes. A person can do anything as long as they believe in themself and help their neighbor.
