Return to Americans

Brenda Frickenschmidt

“We’re in Marshall, Oklahoma – ‘Twilight Zone of America.’
We’ve been here for eighteen years; Peace and quiet. Good neighbors….
Population of maybe 250 people here in town, if you count the critters.

Agriculture is the mainstay here. Most of the folks that are still working that don’t have farms here drive a long way to their jobs. My husband drives 52 miles one way.

If there were an ocean across the street with a nice sandy beach and few hermit crabs, that’d be great.

But,since there’s not

I suppose you trade off.”
