Recently there was a letter to Cramer which includes Domestic violence and ends with bravery or a badge of honour “We are all North Dakotans. We are all Prairie tough.”
It is available here too, but based on comments, some users in some areas may not have access to any of this material.
Here is a snippet:
That is prairie tough.
We are all survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, or rape.
We are all North Dakotans.
We are all prairie tough.
Now, if Spartans are attacked by Corinthians (for example), Spartans may invoke their honour by saying “We are Spartans; We are tough; We will not retreat”.
Or if an Ape Army attacked Humans (another example), we might say “We are Humans, we are masters of Earth”.
The two sides of the fight are not overlapping.
But in this case, the victims as well as culprits are North Dakotans, both of whom are Prairie tough.
In the letter to Cramer, how is being a North Dakotan a badge of honour ?
