Early Life and Education
When Machesney Park resident Xira Hardt reads about the economy and its effect on families like hers, it feels as if she were reading from her own life’s storybook: closed-door discussions between she and her husband regarding cutting cable/Internet service; assuring her five children they won’t lose their home; bargain hunting used to be for fun but now needs to become necessary; working part-time jobs together so their kids are kept warm, clothed and fed; it all seems too real for comforting assurance.
