  1. Love this article! You said it; community! Not necessarily the community inside the city limit signs, but the groups of like-minded people. I’m convinced there are these little niches of community all over our country, Ag, civic or professional, the mantra of which are based upon, “Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you.” THAT’s why you saw the faith, heard the prayer, saw the flag and anthem respected, witnessed comrararie smiles, hugs and ‘high fives’, and the joint effort for the helpless. And you witnessed that because a community of individuals understood their duty to do good, where they were, while they could. The importance of America is not in its groups, rather in its individuals, being American, with pride and gratefulness for the opportunity!

  2. So true. I attended the auction this weekend and I agree, the kids that participated showed the upmost of respect for their animals and everyone that was there rooting them on. So proud of this generation of FFA teens.
