I didn’t know anybody who lived through The Second Great Depression when I was young. Or if they had, they didn’t advertise. That’s Northern Minnesota for yah. We all have history, so why talk about it? I’ve met a few people after The War came who did, and the thing that gets me is that most people never saw The Depression coming. They thought there was always another person, bank, or country to borrow money from back then. They thought the credit lines would never end. All they wanted was enough credit to buy the next television, phone, or gaming console. And if they watched the news at all, it was about places far away like Washington, Europe, or Asia. None of it meant anything to their world. Until it did. And then it was just far too late to save the world they knew.
