Kentucky is My Land
In my flesh and bone and blood
Since I am of Kentucky
And Kentucky is part of me.
-Jesse Stuart from his 1952 Poem Kentucky is My Land
These words by Kentucky son Jesse Stuart signify what Kentucky for Kentucky is all about. Read them and read them again. Find your Kentucky voice.
Thank you all for your support thus far. Let's finish strong. To date we've raised over $100,000. Bam! That will get Kentucky a 1 second spot in a Super Bowl Commercial. Bam Bam! It will be the most amazing second the world has ever experienced. Plenty of magic can happen in a second. Like the second that Daniel Boone looked up and saw the Land of Tomorrow when he crossed the Cumberland Gap. Like the second Colonel Harland Sanders dropped his chicken in a hot oiled cast iron pan in Corbin Kentucky. Like the second of conception between Nick and Nina Clooney that produced Gorgeous George.
We've had great press this week, both the western and the northern presses inked us up, and the LA Times is going to run a piece. Check out and share the articles: Courier Journal and the Cincinnati Enquirer.
