“Courage is not having the strength to go on;
it is going on when you don’t have the strength.”

Theodore Roosevelt

(Vivian Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind, wearing her mother’s curtains)

Think Scarlet O’Hara, Julia Sugarbaker and Steel Magnolias all rolled into one.
Who else would think to turn their mother’s prized curtains into
a matter of getting what they need…but a Southerner.

That’s because we in the South understand the significance of
desperate times requiring drastic measures…

For we are a resourceful lot when we need be,
especially during the thick of battle..
We are kudzu and honey all rolled into one..
Barbed wire and sugar spun together…

Because that’s just what we are down here in the South,
tenacious as a bulldog when needed,
soft as a cotton ball when called for….

We are also sweet and charming.
We are cordial.
We are warm.

One thought on “tenacity

  1. What I wrote in the original post: “I have the utmost respect for those from the South…when I was younger at age 14 I went to a boot camp in the South and was exposed to Southerners and Southern ways for the first time. I’m from California by the way. My time in the Marines and seminary made me appreciate those from the South and I think its unfortunate that some sector of America’s cultural elites like to sterotype and are prejudicial against Southerners…”
