A reader of Friday’s blog entry writes,  

“I saw your post A Historical Peek at Past Depression Talk.  I think you may be interested in “Pennyland – Echoes of the Great Depression” — which I created from an original song written by my brother.   Here’s the link to the video:

This is not meant as a political statement, but rather as an attempt to put a face on something that so often appears academic.   I thank you.   In hard times artists, as much as anyone, need strong advocates to help share their work.

I found your images powerfully haunting and yet the lyrics spiritually uplifting.  As tough as our circumstances may seem right now, they still seem to pale in comparison.  At the same time, I take comfort in knowing that we as a people always find ways to persevere. 

Thanks for sharing.
