Where life makes sense. Where taxes are high as the teenagers. Where the police can't shoot straight. Where you hang out at Wal-mart on a friday night to pass the time. Where you can buy freshly killed chicken from the hutterites behind the big eye for a fraction of the cost in the stores. Where a hutterite comes up to you on the street and asks if you would taste his sausage and we know what he means. Where you send your 5 year olds to walk 5 blocks in the dark in minus 20 weather to go to school. The only place in the world that doesn't even question the car running with your baby strapped in the car seat with the doors unlocked while the parent goes shopping. Where 1 out of 3 teenage girls are pregnant. Where there is a church on every corner but the christians are few and far between.
Swift Current is a great place to get stoned, get pregnant, walk in the dark at a young age and not get raped. Become a Christian, raise your kids, walk in the parks with your dog. Get your own key for the porn store. And get your lawn ordements stolen. You know, like every other city.
