Kansas: Alice

Have you ever thought about how Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz are kind of the same story? Alice and Dorothy are both transported to a magical land. They both deal with an evil villain. They both must figure out how to get home and defeat the villain.

Yes, one fights a queen while the other fights a witch, and they meet different creatures along the way, but the basic parts of the story are quite similar. And because of that, I thought Alice would be the perfect character for Kansas. While she takes a rabbit hole to Wonderland, she could easily be swept up by a tornado in Kansas and taken to the magical realm.

Because of what people associate with Kansas due to Wizard of Oz, the state represents the same possibilities for something magical to happen and that life doesn’t have to be the same dull day-to-day with the same annoying people. It can be so much more if you just look for it and isn’t that what Alice in Wonderland is all about.

While Alice might feel the same way about Kansas as Dorothy did, after her adventure she would come to appreciate it due to the growing up she does while in Wonderland. You can’t really be the same innocent kid when you’ve had a queen threaten to chop off your head and been tricked by a mischievous, disappearing cat.

No offense, Kansas, but I think Alice would appreciate the state much more after her trip. A cozy home and a routine everyday life seem like the best thing in the world after you’ve dealt with a wild tea party with the Mad Hatter.
