This series of pictures highlight what it was like living through the Great Depression during the 1930s
WE THINK WE HAVE GOT IT BAD! This was a mere 80 years ago. It makes complaining about no cell service, high petrol prices, not enough DSTV 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 gratitude. 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.”
