Transcript of 04.05 The Great Depression

I'm not exactly sure what is going on. All I know is my family's farm is doing so bad, so we had to move. All my dad's cows and chickens died. I am wearing old clothes that smell, and I haven't had a good nights sleep in a while. My dad said we are moving to California so he can get a job. I hope we can get a house again; living on the road sucks. My mom can't stop crying because all of our stuff is gone and we can't travel with a lot. I'm willing to work though to help my family.
My husband invested all of our money into the stocks, and now we have nothing. The stock market crash ruined our lives. I don't even know how I am going to raise my daughter and son. We lost our house and barely have enough food to feed us four. We have moved out of Texas and are migrating north in hopes of finding cheap houses and a job for my husband. We couldn't travel with all of our stuff, so we only have a few clothes, blankets, and toys for the kids. I think we can find a nice little house in South Dakota, but who knows. I can only pray.
My name is Norman John. I cannot even begin to describe how much the Dust Bowl has affected my life. All my crops are gone, along with all my livestock. I thought Kansas would be a great place to settle down with my family and farm, but boy was I wrong. This drought has forced me to sell my home; the house my whole family lived in. We now are forced to migrate to California. I hope I can find a job there. We are migrating with all our belongings; clothes, some cooking supplies, and the necessities. I hope we make it.
