Remembering the Great Depression

Our United States is beginning another financial crisis. I remember the financial crisis of 1929. I was born in 1916, which made me a teenager when Wall Street crashed. We heard about men jumping to their deaths from skyscrapers because they couldn't face the results of their financial ruin. No one took such a violent out in our little town of Crawford, Nebraska, but men were found standing on the street or leaning against buildings with defeated, sad faces.
