Meaning of Red Barn
Raised in rural America on the border between exurban Chicago and Indiana farms, a singular prominent Red Barn sat at a critical juncture on the journey from Chicago to the comfort of my childhood home. I always knew we were headed in the right direction at that Red Barn. It was my True North.
Barns symbolize ingenuity and grit. The work done in barns throughout this country has feed generations of Americans, and now the world. The barn is the center of a massive operation the product of which is far more important than it, yet impossible were it not for the barn. It is where groups convene and solve problems, do things, make life better. It is the engine.
