The Great Depression :Bread Lines

The Great DepressionDeep sorrow filled the americans heart Everyone had to do their part People were trading and selling their things Raving about what life would bring Even the little ones felt the pain Souls did suffer in heat, cold, and rain Sad to say theat the days filled with grief In hopes that the Depression sooned would cease On Sunday was a day of rest, everyone would gather and thank God they were blessed Not in ways that we might think, but in everyday living that life did bring

They Tried to support their families as much as they could , but sometimes trying was just not enough.

Men would line up for blocks just to getfood for there family. Many people in the back of the linenever even make it to the front on some days.

In the wake of the Great Depression many New Yorkers lost their jobs, savings, and property. There was no unemployment insurance and almost no government relief reached the people of New York. Some New Yorkers -- even those who had made a fortune in the stock market's heyday -- now struggled to simply survive. Many stood in bread lines. To get food for themselves and for their families, men stood four abreast forming lines that were as long as city blocks.
