I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. And even though I am from a ‘city’ I have been out in the country. My mother is from a small town in northern Nebraska and we would visit her side of the family at least once a year. When I say small town I mean small town. Like one street, no stoplight type of town. I have even been to towns with two people living in them aka Gross Nebraska (the bar there serves really good burgers). I have traveled to Chimney Rock, Scottsbluff and Lake McConaughy. I love going to football games in Lincoln on Saturdays. But one of my favorite things about Nebraska is the fans. I go to school is Missouri and there a lot of Nebraska fans at my school. So many, that on NE game day in the cafeteria people will yell “GGOO BBIIGG RREEDD!” and others will to the response of “GO BIG RED!”. I love hearing that across campus. I love to wear my Husker gear around school and see others do the same.
There is this video I found on YouTube called “Little Nebraska Town”. The artist is Rachel Price and she is from O’Neil Nebraska which is right next to the town my mom is from. I’ll put the link in here but this video is such a good description of NE.
From Nebraska to You,
