This is a story of how a family survived hard times after losing their farm during the Great Depression.
This story tells about life in generations past. Not long ago we could walk to school through the woods or down the road without being afraid. Children could pray in school. Parents were in charge of their children's eating habits, whether good or bad, but still in charge. It was a time when individuals took responsibility for their actions and didn't look to others for a handout.
This generation knew a life of hard work inspired by a desire to make a better life for themselves, their children and grandchildren.
This is a story that shows that life is what man makes of it, not what life makes of man. A story of how despair can be set aside with laughter. A story about the class of people who made the United States of America the land of the free and the home of the brave.
