Proud of where they came from

A former co-worker of mine shares her thoughts on growing up in Appalachia.
In addition to these little things we also strive to live by the values instilled in us, and pass them on to others in younger generations. Values such as honesty and integrity.
Another favorite phrase I heard often when growing up: “They’re good people.”
That didn’t mean rich people, or people judged important by society’s standards. Nope, they could be poor as dirt without two nickels to rub together. That saying referred to a person or a family’s character — the type of people who would help neighbors after a tragedy, or mow the church lawn just because it needed to be done.
The good people that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton want to put out of work.
