Every now and again, the opportunity arises to go home. And though I sometimes can rag on this city, it is home and it is actually intruiging in its own right.
From sky scrapers to slums, Houston is home to those from every walk of life; and as the 4th largest city in the United States- the appeal does make sense. Originally founded in 1836, the banks of the Bayou river provided health and wealth to those who ventured to stay. Today, it is home to fortune 500 companies, NASA, and many cultural institutions, which some 7 million people visit every year.
It is home. It is where I was raised. It is where my beautiful family lives. And it is where I am sure, one day I will return.
