8 Reasons Why People From Nebraska Are The Best Kind Of People You’ll Ever Meet
We talk a lot about the things to see and do in Nebraska…but it’s just as important to give credit to the people who make Nebraska a great place to live. There are hundreds of reasons Nebraskans are great, but here are eight of our favorites.
We're raised to be friendly and respectful.
Try walking through a small Nebraska town without a few people stopping to talk. Impossible! If you're a stranger in the town, you'll still get some friendly head nods, smiles, and unsolicited greetings.
We're a fun-loving bunch.
There are so many fun things to do in Nebraska that it seems like we're spoiled for choice. We usually just try to squeeze in as many as possible to maximize our fun.
If a friend, neighbor, or even a complete stranger needs help, we're always ready to lend a hand. This willingness to help is just another facet of Nebraska friendliness.
Even in the midst of tragedy, we're always looking forward and thinking about how we can make the future brighter. We might get knocked down once in a while, but we always seem to get back up.
We're also persistent.
Rebuilding - whether it's a house, a town, or a life - can be frustrating. But Nebraskans hang on and work hard until the job is done.
We're hopelessly devoted.
When we find something worth believing in and sticking up for, we'll put our whole hearts behind the cause.
Family always comes first.
If there's one thing we all know from an extremely early age, it's that family comes first in everything we do.
We stand by one another.
It feels nice to know that, no matter where you go in the world, fellow Nebraskans have your back.
We’d love to hear from you, dear readers. What other qualities make Nebraskans the best people you’ll ever meet?
