This is amazing and entirely true in my opinion. It’s the same thing here out in Small Town, Iowa (totally not the real name of the town) where I live. My family owns centennial farms passed down for generations but the 1980 clan of kids is when college began.

It kills me too because without farmers we would starve and without small towns farming economics would not thrive. Even more so, I perceive a future with Trump making no efforts for the little guy.

Thank you for writing this and bringing desperately needed attention to the subject!
