Language is Everything …
This was the first time I’ve been to Nebraska. The people were super friendly, the architecture was outstanding and the downtown sculpture of Omaha was unique, featuring the pain and stamina of our pioneers. They came to know the “good life.” Here, I learned from the people about some of their social beliefs and economic successes. And don’t let anyone suggest that Nebraska is flat. There are many rolling hills here. As a cyclist, I can attest to this.
It became evident why people conclude that a president of our country must get out of the “bubble” of D.C. to truly understand and stay connected to his national constituency. One area of the country is quite different from another.
It was a pleasure for me to share “the good life” for a short while with the folks from Nebraska.
