Semper Liberi (#701)

I am getting ready to travel to Florida; planning my route and overnight stops.  It is always fun to discover a new route from any that I previously traveled.

Since northeast Ohio is my starting point, I can head south along Interstate 77 for most of my journey.  That will put my first stop in West Virginia.

I noticed that the state changed its slogan from “Almost Heaven” back to its original “Wild and Wonderful.”  Then I saw that West Virginia also has a motto.  I was confused; thinking  motto and slogan were identical.  Nay, nay!

After some quick research, I learned that a motto expresses a principal guiding behavior. West Virginia’s (short version) motto is: “Semper Liberi”,  meaning Always Free.  I like that very much.

A slogan is a phrase that is easy to remember and attracts attention.  So “Wild and Wonderful” attracts us and “Semper Liberi” guides us.

I like both the motto and the slogan for West Virginia and look forward to a most congenial stay at one of the states wild and wonderful state parks where I will most certainly revel in my appreciation of being always free ~
