The school song for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has the following lyrics:
“There is no place like Nebraska,
Dear old Nebraska U,
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest,
Of any old school that I knew!
There is no place like Nebraska,
Where they’re all true blue,
We’ll all stick together
In all kinds of weather
For dear old Nebraska U!”
After last weekend, it made me realize how the “all kinds of weather” line is super salient to me. Not just for Dear Old Nebraska U, but also for my friends and causes that I care about. I can offer several examples from recent years that show my loyalty to people, teams, and causes are rarely sidetracked by the weather. These are in approximate chronological order.
