This piece more clearly encapsulates the direction I wanted my writing to take. I was struggling with understanding the political dynamics of Little Rock. I love this town. I realized after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, however, that I did not fully understand it. I don’t want to simply be a visitor here. My wife and I talk too often about buying property either in West Little Rock or out in the nearby rural counties and raising children in the metropolitan area.
