On Being A Southerner

Those from outside the region often have difficulty grasping what it means to be a Southerner. This might help a little.

As a New Yorker who has lived in "The South" [Texas] for about 10 years now, I'm proud to say that even when I lived in NY, I always had a deep appreciation for Southern culture and way of life. There's a lot to be admired; family values, down home hospitality, religious beliefs, pride of country; (and in TX state). In this day and age, when it appears we are losing touch with all of those things, it's good to see there are places where the "permanent things" still hold value. It's not difficult for me to grasp. I get it.

My own great-great grandfather on my father's side was a carpetbagger. Our family "assimilated" very quickly though. ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Wonderful. Do you know the gentleman, Richard?

No, Brock, I don't. I believe he's local though.
