It both harmed and helped society when president Franklin Delano Roosevelt came into presidency. The 1930’s were very important due to in that decade lots of things happened to negatively impact the country but we came out of the dust. Imagine this, living in a world with no money or food. A world where over 30,000,000 americans are left jobless because your country’s currency lost its value to basically nothing. Unfortunately, that was life in the year 1932 this was one of the hardest times for
Heather Whipps supports this idea in her article, How the Black Death Changed the World, by stating, “The Black Death-as it is commonly called-especially ravaged Europe, which was halfway through a century already marked by war, famine and scandal in the church…” (Whipps 1-2). The war had already weakened Europe financially, causing them to have a lack of resources. Due to these factors, people started moving from the countryside to city-side to better get those resources. Since cities were so condensed, it was easier for germs to spread, especially an airborne disease like the plague. Whipps continues, “Densely populated Europe, which had seen a recent growth in the population of its cities, was a tinderbox for the disease” (2).
Children experience death in many ways-whether it is a loss of a family member, friend or pet. Death has a tremendous impact on children and often generates what is referred to as a grief reaction (Corr, 2003), they way they respond to a loss. Discussing death with children can be a real concern and many tend to avoid it. Death is however an inevitable part of life and it is our responsibility to ensure our children are aware of it and know it’s okay to discuss it. If we introduce children to the topic of death, we can give them needed information, prepare them for a crisis, and help them when they are upset.
Some children’s struggles in Africa can be clearly traced back to the pandemic of AIDs and civil wars in regions, as well as other political factors: “...civil wars in some regions that turned boys into soldiers and other children into refugees, and poverty resulting not only from disease and war but also from economic stagnation, population growth, and political corruption.” In some instances, as evident in Africa, the children have no control over their past history, yet it is the leading factor for why they cannot receive an education. The small acts that are done each day contributing to a throwaway culture have had long lasting effects for the children in the world today. As mentioned earlier, women make up approximately two thirds of the illiterate population among illiterate adults. In fact, half of the adult women in Africa are illiterate. The argument is made that educating women and decreasing the illiteracy rate among women worldwide will have a larger benefit than educating more men.

In the 1930s post World War I America had a total collapse of the stock market causing the Great Depression affecting the economy on a global scale, but hitting hardest at home in the United States. However, the economy wasn’t the only thing that was hit hard during this time; seemingly unstoppable dust storms ravaged farming land from the west to east coast hitting hardest in the great plains in the middle section the the US became known as the Dust Bowl. The Dust Bowl was not entirely a causation of bad luck on nature, it was caused by an increasing demand for crops, advancements in farming technology, while the final nail in the coffin was a lack of rain.

“ Determining the direct and indirect costs associated with this period of droughts is a difficult task because of the broad impacts of drought, the event’s close association with the Great Depression, the fast revival of the economy with the start of World War II, and the lack of adequate economic models for evaluating losses at that time. “ http://drought.unl.edu/DroughtBasics/DustBowl/EconomicsoftheDustBowl.aspx “ Then the drought began. It would last eight straight years. Dust storms, at first considered freaks of nature, became commonplace. Static charges in the air shorted-out automobiles on the road; men avoided shaking hands for fear of shocks that could knock a person to the ground.
The Dust Bowl received its name in April 35, 1935, the day after Black Sunday. Robert Geiger, a reporter wrote: “Three little words achingly familiar on a Western farmer’s tongue, rule life in the dust bowl of the continent – if it rains.”. It was also one of the worst disasters for its time. The depression lasted from 1930 to 1941, and it impacted the poor, such as delaying marriages, dropping the birth rate and many children became sick and ill. Franklin Roosevelt was the present at the time and dealt with the Dust Bowl, and was originally the governor of New York, He proposed many daring plaines that he even thought wouldn 't end well.

The Struggle Through the Dust Bowl The Dust Bowl left the Great Plains with dry land and nowhere to farm. This led many people to move in search of jobs or new technology purchased using credit. Although everyone struggled, African Americans took the hit harder, as they were discriminated and lost jobs to whites.
