Whoa, there! Not so fast!
Are you thinking, "I read what it means to you to be TexanAgain. do you really think Texas has a monopoly on those values?!?!"
I'll let you in on a little secret. I think you're right! I've lived in 5 states now. My husband has lived in 10. He's visited all states except Alaska and I've visited about 40 of the 50 states (a subject for another post). Together, we've visited Mexico, Costa Rica, several Caribbean islands. I've visited Bengaluru, India. I found like-minded folks in every place I've visited!
So, I know from firsthand experience that Texans don't have a monopoly on the TexanAgain values. But there is a certain amount of pride in Texas around these things. Now that I'm TexanAgain, I'm making it my mission to exhort my compatriots to keep these values alive.
