The Stock Market

On this day in 1929, the Stock Market crashed and ushered in the Great Depression.  Of course, that’s only the surface of the story, but today was seen as the beginning of that difficult chapter of our nation’s history.  

History is still being made every day, of course.  Today the stock market was closed due to the arrival hurricane Sandy.  Our prayers go out to everyone who has been affected so far and to those in the path of the storm.
