President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
123 NYZ Avenue, NW
Respected Mr. President,
I hope this letter will find you in the best of health and highest of spirits. Being a respectable and law-abiding citizen of the United States of America, I would like to bring your attention to a very serious, in fact, a grave matter that is being faced by me nowadays. As a matter of fact, it is not a personal issue but a national issue that has gradually become a global problem and is affecting the whole world ultimately.
It is already in your knowledge that the country is currently going through a very rough phase. We all are currently suffering from the Great Depression, which has greatly affected our lives. This Great Depression has not only left the national economy in a fix but has also affected the life of each and every citizen of the United States whether they are a small farmer or an elite class businessman. It has not even spared the small children and school-going students.
The after effects of this Great Depression are not hidden from you but I would still like to bring in your notice the current situation that is being faced by the residents of the United States of America. These details will let you have an insight into the actual situations from an ordinary person's point of view who is himself experiencing and is a victim of the after-effects of the Great Depression. Moreover, this letter will help you to witness the effect of this Great Depression from the eyes of a common man who is watching all the devastation made by this storm of the Great Depression.
I am watching and getting a firsthand experience of the aftershocks of the Great Depression and feeling very bad that I cannot do anything about this. I live in Massachusetts and it will be in your knowledge that the unemployment rate in this state is the highest among all the states of the United States of America (Elder). I am watching my friends, neighbors, and relatives lose their jobs silently and cannot do anything about it. I am watching children lose their education because their parents can no longer afford to pay their school fees. I am watching my neighbors become homeless as they cannot pay the rents of their luxurious houses anymore.
I am also a direct victim of the Great Depression. Although I was not doing very well-off before the economic downfall I had a stable job and money to pay my house rent. I was working as a manager at a nearby store, at which I was recently promoted and my pay had recently raised but as the Great Depression struck the country's economy, the owner of the store started firing the employees immediately. I was also among one of those employees who were downsized.
I also came to know about the steps that you are taking to stabilize the economy of the country, and I truly appreciate them. The steps you are taking and have already taken for controlling the situation and pushing the circumstances towards positivity in the form of New Deal are undoubtedly appreciable. Especially the Act introduced by you to facilitate the commodity farmers is truly commendable, but I would like to request you to kindly design some act for the ordinary employed people as well, who used to work 9 to 5 in a day or were counted as the working class of the society. I hope you will look into my suggestions and will surely provide the nation, especially the working and the labor class with some positive news.
