My people, as I have long said, were raised up on hard times in the Appalachian foothills. I don’t know that I had a grandparent who ever saw the sum of $500 at one time or even held a $100 bill in hand. There are many times my heart breaks when I think of the struggles each faced and how their shoulders visibly slumped from the weight of the worries they carried.
