I’ve Seen The Future. It Looks Like Appalachia.
Travis Lowe

It is very inspiring to read this message of hope among all the despair caused by the decline of the coal industry. 
Yet, what struck me as odd, was the principle of “only buy locally”. 
In a time when humanity is moving closer together and growing into a single nation, restricting interaction to people you already know closes you off from this development. The world is full of good people, and if you ignore them for no other reason than they are from somewhere else, regardless of their virtue, you are doing a disservice to everyone. Every community needs input and interaction with the outside world to thrive.
