Dear Mom and Dad

Dear Mom and Dad

Alex Stout's insight:

Dear Mom and Dad,

 

 

       How are you doing? I hope all is well. Ever since the Great Depression it has been hard to find jobs. In the city the banks are closed down because they do not have money to give back to the people and for that they have to close down. People can not get their money out or put money in the banks. We are starting to lose our house and job. We have to go to a soup kitchen everyday and most of them don’t let in African Americans and we have to sleep in the street every night. It is hard to be here, but people are coming out of town because of the dust bowl and are trying to find home or work and there are not enough for us here for us, to have are own jobs. People have talk about moving but were can we go there no where to go out west there to much dust and there no work out there. The President is not doing anything to help us out he just saying the place will fix itself. We need help!  How can the place fix itself when no one is doing anything to help us with it? They think we can do everything but we cannot fix it our selves. It not right to have the people try and fix it if we could fix it we have not elected a president to help us with this problem we have now.

 

Sincerely,             

Alex Stout
