Home on the Prairie

November 14, 2011

Below, is one of my favorite articles from Smithsonian Magazine.  The comments are touching and brilliant. Unless you live or have lived here you just don’t get that Nebraska is a great place to be. The whole perception of “there is nothing to do here” is complete nonsense. Show me a picture of a prairie and I’ll show you the beauty of vast open spaces, show me a picture of corn fields and I’ll show you the most hard working, dedicated land stewards we have in this country, show me a picture of the sandhills, and I’ll show you the great rolling hills of the plains, boundless beauty to the horizon . There is no place like Nebraska.
