Florida gets talked about a lot during an election year. It also tends to get mentioned in any article about serial killers.
I’m from Florida. Born and raised in the middle of the state by a single dad from Rhode Island. Out in the boondocks, an only child, it was like growing up in another universe. Florida was out there. I could see it. I walked around it. But somehow, I was never really there.
Or at least when I hear people on TV talk about Florida, I feel I’m not from there at all.
Do you find the portrayals of your home true or describing a place you’ve never seen?
