After learning a lot more about the 1930’s, I have realized that I am so, so lucky, and I take way to much for granted. One of the things I think that I take for granted the most is food. I am lucky because I have a surplus of food at my house, and I can basically eat whatever I want, whenever I want. I was raised always having plenty of food and never having to worry about it, so I have always thought that it is normal to always have plenty of extra food, and being able to eat as much as I want. When I learned more about the 1930’s, especially The Great Depression, I realized that back then most people didn’t have extra food. There were lots of people that were either starving or barely getting by. I have realized that I should be more grateful for the things I have. Sometimes I get bugged when we don’t have the exact food that I want to eat, but from now on I am going to try to just be happy with the fact that we have plenty of food in our fridge!
