I’m a woman living on a farm in northeast North Dakota. I was raised on my family’s farm in central North Dakota and had dreams of a VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) career back in the early 1970s. Robert Kennedy had asked young people to choose to help others here in the US. I had visions of working in the Appalachian Mountains, helping those families. Well, none of that happened. This blog will be a record of what did happen to that girl.
