The current stories of our U.S. homeless children closely resemble the stories my father told of the Great Depression. When do we acknowledge history is repeating itself?
Senior citizens remember during the 1930s Depression how everyone was poor and had to share. When mother cut a Milky Way candy bar into equal parts for each family member, we always cried for an end piece because it had thick caramel (since eliminated).

The Crown Uptown Theatre’s “White Christmas” was great and the food was adequate. But I had concerns about the lighting and crowded seating arrangement.
