Simply said...I feel very blessed to call the Huntsville, Alabama area my home. Sometimes I think that I see it through eyes that most can't see. The way that I have seen the area evolve tells my age. As a child, I remember the pride that people took in Madison County being the top cotton producer in all of the US. I remember the pride that we took when President John Kennedy came to Huntsville after announcing that the US would land a man on the moon. We led the way. I've seen our cotton base turn into manufacturing and then turn into cutting edge technology. I've seen the influx of people from all over the world come to my hometown with no plans to leave. It gives me a heartsmile to think of all of the changes, but to know that there is one element that hasn't changed and that is Southern Hospitality. People come and learn to adapt. It is the sweet ingredient that makes me feel blessed to call Huntsville my home.
