Life of a teenager

I think that us teenagers would be affected in this day and age in the 1920-1930's. We would probably go insane without our phones. But when the depression hit we would go crazy half of us teenagers would not know whats going on when the depression hit.

when i think about the 1920-1930's i was thinking how could we survive. A lot of teenagers would probably not know what was happening during the depression.
