Humans of mid-America?

One of my favorite users on Facebook is Humans of New York.

Every day he tells stories of random people in New York.

Sometimes he focuses on certain parts of the city, and he’s also traveled to different countries and applied the same method.

It just struck me that we should have a HONY for the middle of the United States. The world would love to hear their stories, I imagine. We don’t know what to make of the Trump phenomenon. Maybe by putting a human face on it, through story-telling and photography, we could get a better sense of who the other Americans are.

I’m very far away from them in many ways. But I understand that we have to listen and hear what the individuals are saying, as people, not through a spokesperson who we don’t like or trust. (An understatement.)

Let’s figure out how to do this!
