I love my Southern heritage and if I could have chosen, I wouldn't have had it any other way. I grew up and was taught how to be a lady. If an elder addressed me I was to answer "Yes ma'am" or "Yes sir." My mother always told me to speak my mind. I always felt like freedom of expression was a God-given right. I played outside until the sun went down. I didn't have many electronics to keep me busy. Most of my friends were animals, and when it came down to it I wasn't afraid of snakes. I learned how to shoot guns and ride four-wheelers, and swimming in the river was some of the most fun I could ever have with my friends. Some people who aren't from the South view us as uneducated people with thick accents, but not all of us are like that. I promise. I've known a lot of wonderful Southern people, and I'm glad to be one of them.
