Yesterday, I got the chance to speak with Ed Fowler, who survived the Dust Bowl, the Great Depression, Normandy, and Nazi work camps as a POW. His wife grew up in a log cabin during the Depression with her mother and six younger siblings. She worked as a Rosie the Riveter, building C-47s during the war, and wrote him letters every night he was missing.
Long live the human spirit.
