Jordan Green Says "It's a small world" after all

The old saying “It’s a small world” still rings true. 

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jordan Green. I live in Blackwell, OK, where I’m a fedora-wearing reporter with the Blackwell Journal-Tribune. I’ve lived here for most of my life – but Sayre is still my home.
  My parents, Phil and Julie Green, grew up in Sayre. My dad was a physician’s assistant there for several years. My maternal grandparents, Jimmy and Patsy Dean, ran the church at New Liberty, retiring in 2012. Tucker and Donna (Moss) Kitchens, my paternal grandparents, taught at local schools for the majority of their careers. My paternal great-grandparents, U.L. and Louise Moss, trained horses there. My uncle Don Green lived there. And I was born there. 
  As you can see, I’ve got a bit of a connection.
I was two years old when my dad took a new job in Blackwell, and we’ve lived there ever since. For most of my childhood, my family and I trekked west twice a year to see my family there. Sayre was incredibly special to us. Still is, too.
