I don’t believe Appalachian culture is better than all others. That is not what this is about. This is for every time people say there is nothing to do around here. This is for every time someone comments on a photo of my home saying the mountains are pretty but I’m probably ignorant, poor, oblivious, inbred, a redneck, a hillbilly, on meth, boring, isolated and incapable. This is for every friend who is disappointed in me because I am still here. This is because I’m not boring, my town is not boring, and I don’t have to leave, but if I do, that’s okay too.
