I think that might be it. Like I said, they were raised in the city and their names blended in with all the other not usual names but I also have noticed a huge difference in culture between living in the city and out here in Rural America. In Iowa they appear to take family heritage, hard work and values very seriously, not to say people don’t in the city it’s just that this is the major focus where I live now. It’s quite admirable, actually.
