I proudly hail from the Midwest, the heart and soul of America's sovereign states. I stand firm planted upon its soil, erect and upright, with my head held high, with my left arm firmly outstretched broadcasting my open-palmed hand: I AM FROM MICHIGAN.
My home is my hand. The mitten is my state. I can point on my fingers the cities, towns, and peoples represented in this great unique place upon Earth. My home is the left ring finger of the hand. I AM MARRIED TO MY LAND. My bridegroom is my land, my people. No man, government or force can breach this inert, self-evident truth, this unalienable right endowed by the Creator of all mankind.
