f you could see Nebraska through my eyes, you’d see places to explore. You’d see frogs and turtles. Butterflies, birds, and bugs. You’d look the other way. And around the river, you’d see a whole bunch of grass. You might even see me. And if you did, I’d show you around. ‘Cause I’ve lived here my entire life.

My name is Emmett and this is the Calamus River through my eyes.
