It may seem strange to compare a small island in the channel between Jutland and Zealand, in the middle of Denmark, with my home county here in West Virginia. If you traveled to Samsø, however, you would recognize a lot of similarities. The people are friendly. The land is the most important feature you see, not buildings or highways. Both communities share a measure of isolation caused by physical barriers. Because both communities are rural, they face the same population trends – out-migration of young people and an aging population.
