Until almost a decade ago, Nina Lanuza had always lived in big cities. Then, she moved to Schuyler, Nebraska, and hasn’t looked back since.
“At this point in my life, I don’t think I will ever move back to an urban area,” she said. “Rural America offers a sense of community, unity, social relationships, and peace. The air is filled with birdsong in the mornings, and I know who is in my son's classroom or on his baseball team—those are all priceless to me.”
