Historical Letter.

My letter to My Mother.

JasmineFoster(:'s insight:

Dear Momma,

 

    I know your siting at home reading this wondering why it took me so long to write you. Only if you knew what I have been through these last couple years that I have been gone. I have gone through the true definition of struggle. I had lost my job like 3 or 4 times. I have lost my home and everything. Yes I have a family now I have two kids and a husband. He also lost his job and while we lost our home we had got deported back here but I didn’t know where to find you so I left it at that for a while.  A lot of people lost everything turning into Hobo’s. They had Hardships and living Conditions that where horrible. I can remember the day my child came to me and said” Mom I’m hungry”, right then and there I knew I had to change and do things for my children. Yes I had Unemployment at the time so we had a little money to live off of. I new I had to do what I had to do even though the United Sates deported us back because of what was going on. As you can see they called this time period the Great Depression. I felt so outta place because its like I was a citizen why did I get treated like that. It was really scandalous how they did us. They made us leave al our stuff where it was and we had to leave right then. Once we got deported we had nothing no food, no home, no nothing. My husband finally found his sister and she let us live there for a while. After that I started realizing that I had to find something different down here. So I went down to the help employment office and they helped me find employment. Even though it wasn’t more then what we wanted it was enough for us to at least have a roof over our head and food in our belly. My husband than got out and got him one down at the lumberyard. Which paid good enough for us or to add to what I make. So we started to finally get back on our feet. I was reading an article the other day and it was talking about the Great depression being over. Then two days later the stock market crashed again. We didn’t lose our job this time but good thing we kept our money at home locked up. Once the stock market had crashed again everybody started to run down to the banks and get out all their money. But little did they know that eventually the bank ran out of money and nobody could get out loans and or the money they had in there. I really want to take this time and tell you how much I miss and how much I want to see you. I want you to meet the grandchildren you never met I know its hard on you how I left you but I had to go. Even tough at a point of tie leaving didn’t always help me in the end it did. I know I sent my family through a rough time. But I’m glad they still stand behind me and realize it was just a lesson learned and its life.  Hope to see you right back so that we can get better and meet around and maybe change things in our life to better both of us well I love you hope to see a letter reply soon.

 

Sincerely ,

 

Your Daughter Jasmine(:
