Growing up in rural Kentucky, I learned early on how important community is. It's a support system, an identity, a refuge, and the glue of which that holds it together may be geographical centered, a common interest, a shared belief, or a mutual cause. Within these communities you can learn, grow, expand, and while helping others do the same.
