Jasmine McConnell's insight:

Dear Mom. Hay mom it’s me Franklin, how have things been going lately? Hopefully every thing and one is well. Let James and everybody else know that even though I’m not down there to be with them I still check up on them to make sure things are going ok. I am writing you because I know we really haven’t had the chance to talk things out ever since I left. I know there is so much on your chest that you would like to get off so please feel free to express yourself in the next letter that you send to me. So far I have been really busy down here trying to help better our country to get us out of this Great Depression. Everyday I go to bed with you on my mind. I know it kind of hit you a little hard finding out what was going on the way you did and in the short period of time you did before I had to soon be gone. I know it disappointed you because even though I’m not the oldest, James is; you still needed me around to help with simple and complex situations. But mom, on the other hand, there are many people who need me. You should be proud to see that I am truly trying to do something that will not only better my self but will better our world to. This job that I have took up is not a easy one. There will be times that I will get frustrated and there will be times that I just want to through in the towel, but that is what I need your support for. You’re my mother, the person who raised me the person who know pretty much all of my strengths and weaknesses. I need you and your support through this long journey ahead of me. We are now in this great Depression, and now that this dust bowl had hit us things are getting heavy in the office. The last thing I need to know is that my very own mother the person who birth me isn’t even agreeing with my decisions. I plan to not only take us as a family to a better place in life but us as a country. There has been so much damage and destruction going on that I just couldn’t take it anymore. I believe that I can make a change and put some things at peace. I know that this job that I have wont be easy but I realize that sometimes you have to take the hard road to be successful. Stressed and sleepy, I get up early every morning and try to stay committed to what I promised the people of America. There are so many things I want to accomplish but due to our conditions I know I won’t be able to reach them all. I hope you are starting to soften your heart and accepting what it is that I truly want to do. There is nothing better in any situation rather if it is being president or getting a job promotion at family dollars, there is nothing better than to have your very own mother support. By the way how is everyone doing down there , I haven’t heard from dad lately. James. Elliot, Franklin and John are all doing well. On there spare time they try to do all that they can to keep me company and help with what ever it is that I need. James love to help the people who are in need that has been really affected by the dust bowl storm. Well mom, its been really great being able to hear from you. I pray every day that God protects you. I’m glad that you continue to write me even though you don’t agree with some of my decisions, Hopefully pretty soon I will be able to come down and visit you all I miss everyone. I hope that the work down here would be done sooner than later. That will give me some spare time to pop up and surprise you all. It was really good hearing from you and if you get the chance send me some pictures next time you write me so that I can put them on my desk. I really love you all and I hope you understand that I am doing this to better us as a family and better us as a country. This soon will all blow over so please just hang tight we are almost at the finish line. Please don’t loose your faith in me as your son or as a man. Believe it or not my family is where I started and my family is where I am going to end. You are my biggest support system and I hope to see you soon. I love you all dearly.

 

Love,

 

Franklin D. Roosevelt
