FDR Memorial--Bread Line

This is another image from the FDR memorial. These bronze statues represent the Great Depression in the United States right before and leading into WWII. If it had not been for WWII who knows how long the depression would have lasted here in the U.S. Of course when I look at this image it can be hard to feel the loss and pain when the cherry blossoms look so beautiful in the background!!!

Touching reminder of a very hard time in our history. maybe the blossoms give us a feeling of hope instead of despair.
