As we all know, we owe all we are and all we have to those who came before us. That is particularly true when we think about the magnitude of the sacrifices our parents made as they worked hard, day after day, and as they grew up in a world that presented major challenges. Today many believe our economic situation is difficult, and it definitely is for many of our citizens. Back when our parents were growing up, jobs were difficult to find and many people struggled. The Great Depression was indeed a challenge for many. Both Joe’s parents and Jean’s parents grew up and survived that economic disaster because they were hard workers and providers. To all of them, we owe a great deal of gratitude.
