    these family farms. The margin for error is so slim anyway.

    I am reminded of the Dust Bowl and how the weather made the Great Depression worse because of how many livelihoods were ruined by the droughts during those years.

    A man-made disaster and a natural disaster combined to make life miserable in the 30s and the repeal of the financial system protections put in place after that, and climate change exacerbated "natural" disasters now, have put us in a very bad place.

    The saddest thing is that we do not have a Congress interested in helping those who need it.

    Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.
