The news had traveled fast.  My husband and I had separated. The parking lot behind the elementary school was filled with minivans waiting for the dismissal bell. Several of the carpool-driving moms came to me with kind words and hugs. One of them, an immigrant from another country, said something I didn't quite understand in her halting English. I heard, "Four bedrooms," and I think she might have been offering a place to stay. Her next words were clear, and in the more than 20 years since she spoke, I've not forgotten them.

As I write this article, I am sitting in what you might call the "Buckle of the Bible Belt" - Oklahoma City. I am here on a family vacation, but felt I would share my observations, since I was encouraged by readers after last week's column on others' perspectives. As you can imagine, in Oklahoma, in the southern Great Plains, agriculture is a big deal, as they would say. They grow wheat here, and I mean a lot of wheat. This is the end of their harvest time, but all you see is either wheat being harvested, straw being baled or stubble ground being chisel plowed.
