American Tale

A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues.

 

- Theodore Roosevelt

 

Economic adversity has risen to unparalleled levels for our current generation. The American dream seems to be further away to a larger segment of our population. Let's keep our voices united and help those who have less. This is the story of Margaret, an American woman, who had lost her job on a factory who moved abroad for cheaper labor. Its a two part story because I first photographed her without her even noticing, but then I bumped into her as I progressed through my photo walk that afternoon and I felt compelled to approach her.

 

A very sad story indeed and one that almost seems could have been avoided. I'm sure we all know or know of people in similar circumstances all over America. 2012 American politics is here, let's see what we're going to do.
