Congratulations, North Carolina!

I was born in North Carolina, shout out to Burlington. I have friends and family in North Carolina still, but have found it hard to go back to the South recently for the Trump presidency/election, and the continued Civil War karma that hangs over the South like a plague. I agree Asheville is amazing.
