My parents were born and raised in northeastern Kentucky; I am a proud graduate of Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky; and I’ve taught and lived in southeast Ohio. Friday night Diane Sawyer, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, aired a report on the hidden part of America that is Appalachia, in particular, the deep center of Eastern Kentucky. If you were unable to see the report on television, please do yourself a favor and watch it here. I knew those stories too well and my heart continues to break for ‘my people.’
