A while back there did not appear to be such a chasm between rural hometown and central city. Maybe my memory is playing tricks, but the separation between the countryside hometown and the city had more transition and gentle ambiguity. There were “city slickers” and “country folks” but we were connected as Americans.
We were Americans
We were all Americans and we could all hope, develop, and grow together. Things have changed and suspicion and even hard feelings are manifest. The New York Times took the subject up in a recent opinion piece, and they found certain verities we should all consider.
On a Sunday recently, my wife received a call from someone who wanted information as to where their property might be located. My wife and I piled into the car and met them at the real estate office. Using the internet, we were able to provide the information they needed. They could easily find their property using it.
