crime around my surroundings
|Scooped by chicoyia harris|
Dear Family, I miss home a lot and I wish I could be there for thanksgiving but to bad I’m caught up in the dangerous dust bowl. The dust bowl is the great plain was heightened by the dust bowl. Also the giant dust brought on by droughts. Plus many Americans took to jumping trains and “riding” the rails as they searched for jobs, food & hope. I have been suffering with these breadlines. I say that because with me not having no income and plus no way to feed their families many people have stood in breadlines waiting for a handout to avoid starvation. But throughout the dust bowl I have seen a lot of farmers and farms. But any who back to my income problems. My income of farmers has worsened by the slowing of food sales by farms and foreclosures have increase. But from 1930-1934 I have almost over 1 million farmers lost their farms due to failure. Thought out this way I have seen a lot of prosperity. In this country many have grew more prosperous, consumptions, and GNPC also known as (Gross National Product). The type of trouble here doesn’t make any sense. I’m just ready to go home and be with my family because the type of trouble and crime is really dangerous out here. I say that because the farmers faced hard times. My debt is out of control because I have been spending money on tractors and equipment. But the European demand for crops went down after World War 1. With This Journey I have seen more trouble for farmers with ruarl depression. Like for example farmers are unable to pay debts. Some of the Europeans demand for my crops after World War 1. So I was forced to sell whatever land I had because of my debt. But the workers wages was raising and their wealth industrialist’s income. With the industrial workers wages rising throughout the 1920s workers productivity rose faster and faster by the moment. Most Recently we had a stock market crash in October 29 and that was the day that I lost my job and people began to worry about how they were going to feed their families and provide for there families. But in the process of the stock market crash we had commercial banks , banking system collapse , business began to fail , the unemployment began to rise , public unable to buy good , more business started to go out of business and the unemployment began to rise higher than it was before. With the stock market crash under way it didn’t stop many people from gambling. Some people that were unemployed began to gamble because they were trying to get rich a fast way instead for looking for a new job. I don’t blame them for gambling, have to make money a fast way if you have a lot of children and a lot of mouths to feed. Some people that don’t like to gamble they started to borrow money from the bank to start investing in stocks. With the great depression going on around the same time the dust bowl going on john maynard keyness started to slack on the government and the problems in with money supply distribution of wealth stock speculation consumers were spending a lot. I miss home with all my heart I wish I could be home for thanksgiving so I can eat your resse’ cheesecake that I been loving every since I was little kid and I miss being with the whole family but I will soon get though it and sooner or later I will be home. I’m Closing this letter with this to let you know how I was doing & to let you know that I will be home soon. But when I get ready to come home I’m not going to tell you because I was surprise you and see the look on your face when I come home. Love you a lot miss you lots.
