The core values of small-town life

Reflection is good for the soul. It allows you to see where you’ve been and hopefully chart a better course on where you’re going. During the Thanksgiving holiday I took the time to contemplate my early life in the small community where I grew up.

Located in northwestern Kansas, Seguin was a small farm/ranch community of approximately 50 hearty souls. It was located in Sheridan County, three miles south of Highway 24 and the Union Pacific railroad used to run through our small village.

Seguin was a community where families were raised and principles — good and sometimes bad — were instilled. Looking back, those fortunate enough to grow up there like I did in the ‘50s and ‘60s were surrounded by people with core values that helped guide us throughout our lives.
