Don’t ever apologize for where you’re from…

THIS is worth sharing.

“Don’t ever apologize for where you’re from – that’s what makes us who we are. That’s our foundation, our values. We’ve had young people move here from urban areas after getting a top class education and they said, ‘I feel like I’m part of something, I’m part of a community.’ It’s not about population; it’s about attitude. And that attitude is infectious. …This is our home. We’re not in the middle of nowhere. We’re in the middle of everywhere.”
