For years Americans have been baffled by the prospect of West Virginia and Virginia being two different states. Despite this seeming like a minuscule issue, and a matter of convenience, the ripple effect is astounding. In my youth my American pride was incessantly challenged by my inability to accept the illogical nature of these two things being different states. Sure it’s fine if you say SOUTH Dakota and NORTH Dakota. It’s fine to say SOUTH Carolina and NORTH Carolina, but WEST Virginia and just... Virginia? That’s criminal.

I’m advocating for change here, people from West Virginia should just be able to say that they’re from Virginia. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, drenched in my cold unfeeling sweat, hyperventilating because this issue is having such an intense bearing on my mental health. All I want is a simple change. Thank you, Goodnight
