Today's picture shows a woman sharecropper. The picture was taken in Arkansas near West Memphis in 1936. In looking at the picture, I notice the terrible condition of her shoes and socks. It would be hard to work with tattered shoes like that. It is sad that many people in the world today still operate at this barely survive level. As Americans, I fear we often whine too much and do not appreciate the simple things like enough food, shelter, and good shoes.
