Texas has many things to love. Scenic beauty is widespread, varied and often spectacular. Our cultural heritage is rich, drawing on many ethnic groups and races, and, more than any other state, Texas projects an image that is hard to fully define, but no less real. We love these things about Texas so much that we are in danger of loving it to death.

Population growth is the most obvious factor in this love and death situation. In the decade between 2010 and 2020, we grew more than any other state, and at twice the rate of the nation.
