Missouri is a proud state. As the 24th state to enter the Union, it has a storied history that in many ways tells the history of the American past. Boasting the first university west of the Mississippi river, seeing some of the fiercest fighting of the Civil War and supporting two cities that have played vital roles in the story of the nation, Missouri tells a story. That story has become my story and the story of those around me. While the story has conflict and despair it always has a hue of hope.

This is an on going project.
