The reason for calling

this conference

at this particular moment

is that we are convinced

that we have overcome

a major financial crisis,

a crisis in severity

unparalleled in

the history of the world,

and that with

its relaxation,

confidence and hope have

reappeared in the world.

# Happy days are here again

# The skies above are clear again

All anybody

talked about back then

was the Great Depression,

how bad things were,

and how the good times had

to be just around the corner.

I must have worn out every corner

in Waycross, Georgia,

looking for those good times

before realizing

my destiny lay somewhere else,

anywhere else.

# Happy days are here again

# Your cares and troubles are gone

# There will be no more

from now on

# Happy days are here again

# The skies above are clear again

# Let us sing a song

of cheer again...

Ready, Sonora? You don't

want to be late for school.

Be right there.

- Arnette, where's your sister?

- She's comin', Aunt Helen.

Sonora, you better

quit lollygaggin'.

Sonora, what are ya doin'?

What have you done?

My God, girl!

What am I gonna do with you?

- I'll teach you.

- No, Aunt Helen!

You're gonna wear it,

and that's final.

No more back talk,

or I'll smack your face.

Get out of here.

I don't even want to look at you.

Come here, Lightning.

What's wrong?

Whoa. Easy.

Hold still.

Let me get...


There you go.

That's better, huh, boy?

Isn't that sweet?

Nice haircut, Sonora.

Who cut it? A blind man

with a butcher knife?

That's the ugliest haircut I've seen.

Ugly. She should look in the mirror.

Come on, Lightning.

Where you taking him?

To the glue factory?

He's the best horse

in the county.

- I bet.

- Oh, yeah.

He is. Lightning can outrun

or outjump any horse around.

Can he jump that fence over there?

- He can jump twice that high.

- Prove it.

I would, but I don't want

to be late for school.

You're just a 'fraidy cat.

You're just scared.

Go on. Do it.

I dare you.

I double dare you.

Okay, you just watch.

I think my big mouth

just got us into trouble.

Come on, Lightning.

Come on.

Come on.

- Will she make it?

- She's gonna do it.

Come on, Lightning.


Let's get out of here!

Wait. Get back.


The noun

of the sentence is "boy. "

The verb of the sentence is...

You're late, Sonora.

I'm very sorry, Miss Simpson.

You're getting detention for this.

It's not my fault.

The cows got out, and I...

I don't want to hear any excuses.

Take your seat.

Yes, ma'am.



Class! Quiet! Quiet!

Clarabelle, oh, my...


leave this room immediately.

Young lady, remove yourself.

You must leave.

Sonora Webster is officially

suspended from school

for one week.

I'm informing your aunt.

No one talks to her.

She's not here!

Two red ones

and a green one.

No, ma'am,

please, right here.

Sonora, tell your aunt

that blue thread she wanted

will be here

in a couple of days.

Okay, I will.

- Here you go, Arnette.

- Thank you.

Oh, Sonora. I'm goin' over

to see Sarah. I'll see you at home.

"Young girl...

... diving horses...

...willing to travel. "

Thank you, ma'am.

- You ready?

- Let's get.

What's going on?

What are you doing with Lightning?

- I sold him.

- No, you can't!

Why? Why are you doing this?

I didn't do anything wrong.

- You let the cows out.

- That was an accident.

You got suspended from school.

Since your mama and daddy died,

you've been nothing but trouble.

Lightning, wait! Let me go!


- What are you doing?

- Nothing.

Sonora, I took you and Arnette in

because you're
