We Think We’ve Got It Bad!

This was a mere 87 years ago. The Great Depression of 1929 was a worldwide depression that lasted for ten years. Its kickoff in the U.S. economy was “Black Thursday”, October
24, 1929. That’s when traders sold 12.5 million shares in one day. It was triple the usual amount. The height of the depression was 1933.  

Makes complaining about no cell service, high gasoline prices, not enough cable channels, seem a bit ludicrous. No credit cards to buy what you want, but don’t need! Forward this to remind our kids and others of what really tough times are like. They don’t have a clue.

If you don’t know what the Great Depression was, here’s the motto: “Use it up — wear it out”, make it do or do without!!!!!

This reminds me to be grateful for what I do have.

Start each day with a smile and a prayer. Then pass it on.

“Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery. And Today? Today is a gift.

That’s why we call it the present.”

  1. Can you imagine the carnage that will ensue once food distribution is interrupted? Building a well stocked pantry for survival is a smart thing to do. Most won’t. This is where the unprepared will be the looters, pillagers, and outright murderers for food will stem from.

    Yes, you need to buy more bullets to protect your food and water supply. Do you think starving people will leave you alone if they know you have food? Don’t be ridiculous. We all know how low one will go to survive. Humans, given free choice, can sink to unimaginable depths of cruelty and depravation. There will always be the peaceniks and the “goodie 2 shoes” that believe we’re a civilized society and we would never stoop to that level. I’m not one of them.
