What comes to your mind when you think of “The South”? When I say The South, I mean the Southern part of the
. United States
Do you think of a classic movie like Gone With The Wind?
Or perhaps its Southern Hospitality…because the people are gracious, friendly, polite, and respectful.
Are you a foodie because Southern food is so yummy.
Or do just think of the Southern Girls because they are so beautiful and have that wonderful accent. (Daisy Duke Y’all)
Perhaps you think of its history and the dark/ugly side of racial discrimination.
Does Martin Luther King come to mind and his struggle for civil rights through non-violence?
Maybe it’s George Wallace - the controversial Governor of Alabama.
Did you say entertainment? Let’s not forget the KING (ELVIS) is from The South as is Britney Spears.
Of course The South is also known for football - not soccer, not futbol but American football. The South has most of the top high school teams in the nation. And of course everyone knows that in college football The South RULES! Especially the state of
(Roll Tide!) Alabama
Now why am I writing about all of these things regarding The South? Well, we are visiting The South for the first time this week. We are attending a wedding in
and then we will stay back for a few extra days and visit . Atlanta, Georgia
See y’all after I return.
Yes, I said y’all.
See, I already have a (wannabe) Southern accent.
