Traveling from Fernandina Beach, Florida, to Big Bend, Texas, was a lesson in Small Town America. We encountered that it is alive and vibrant.
We had a chance to talk to some people and that is what they feel about Small Town America:
"We know our neighbors - so far as we have the right to know them. We hear of their joys and their sorrows, and hasten to make them ours so far as we may. Life in a small town is like a layer cake. One gets the whole of it, frosted top, lemon filling and all." (Laura E Richards)
