My mom does not host Easter because the house she is living in is to small for her side of the family, so we drive two hours south to my uncles. We leave the house around 10:30am, but my sister and I take a separate car than my mom. The reason we do so is because my sister and I have to leave before my mom to drive two hours back up to Wisconsin to my dads. When we arrive to my uncles house we greet everyone and just hang around talking to each other. Uncle Keith who is my moms brother loves to cook, so he preps our Easter meal.

The ten year span of the Great Depression showed families how to live without a stable home or even going to bed without dinner some nights. First off, many people living in the 1930’s were unemployed and homeless, causing them to live in Hoovervilles. The citizens living in Hoovervilles lived unsanitary lives and often faced hunger. In fact, Hoovervilles were built out of unwanted material and provided little shelter. Many put all the blame on the then president, Herbert Hoover, when he refused to help his people through this life changing event.

Mama was tired of listening about Walter Lee wanting to invest in a liquor store. Walter Lee's dream to own the liquor store and be his own boss caused his family much pain.

Children living in this type of environment may feel anger, shame, and sadness. They are forced to take on adult roles much earlier because their parents are irresponsible. For instance it shows this in The Glass Castle because the children are forced to make their own meals and fend for themselves because Rex is too busy drinking and Rose Mary is careless (Walls). Alcoholism takes away children’s childhood by forcing them to take on adult roles. Another example of this is when Billy Deel is forced to take care of himself while his father is passed out and constantly drinking, “Billy had a lot of unsupervised time on his hands” (Walls 82).

I. L. M. Ida Moore writes one such document under the title “Bill Branch's Works Progress Administration Life History.” This document reviles how people were feeling desperate and helpless. The main informant in this document is Bill Branch who lost his job because of the economic depression. Expressing his desperation and disappointment in the relief programs government put in place he said, “They Don’t seem to be anyone around here to take any interest to us,….We just live here some of us half starving and the folks outside don’t seem to care” (Moore,1983). This was story of most households at the time. People wondered around without jobs and solely dependent on insufficient assistance from the government.
