My parents never forgot the conditions they lived through in the Great depression.
Same with my parents. They rarely spoke of it and only with others their own age when they did.

The Great Depression was a perfect storm of sorts.
The Dust Bowl.
Shortsighted Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act .
These events all played huge roles. Hopefully, we are wiser now and can prevent history from repeating.
