would anyone like to dream with me?
perhaps own a piece of beautiful america?
one of the places i’ve always wanted to visit was alaska. it’s just one of those places of pure beauty even at temperatures 60below. i definitely want to see the northern lights and climb mount mckinely. i thought this proposal that came out of a high school social studies class was a great exploration of how to boost a town’s dwindling population – give away one of the greatest natural resources that we can possibly have with the expectation to responsibly invest in that community. any entrepreneurs out there?
