To the Editor: Several weeks ago I wrote to the people of Kansas asking for their help in researching this great state for my school report. I write now to thank you all for the amazing number of responses.
I loved all of the letters and cool souvenirs, like draw straws, sunflower seeds, the original rules of basketball, maps, magazines, travel guides, recipes and college gear.
I was amazed at the time people took to put together materials to help with my research. I loved the stories of sunsets, favorite memories, favorite things to do, stories of growing up in Kansas, and personal histories.
I now know that Kansas is the Sunflower State, has beautiful prairies, great colleges, wonderful people and is definitely not flat! I can’t wait to visit one day! I learned far more from you than I ever could have from Google. I really loved everything and I will use it well. Once again, thank you for taking the time to write me!
