Earlier this week, we asked HuffPost readers in Kentucky to send us photos of your home state in advance of tonight's vice presidential debate in Danville.

Readers sent so many inspiring photos that we will be posting a few separate slideshows throughout the day.

Below, some of the men, women and children of the Bluegrass State, as seen through the eyes of HuffPost readers.

You can add your own photos by clicking the green "Add Photos" button, by sending an email to firsthand@huffingtonpost.com, or by tagging your pictures anywhere online with #thisisKY.

Editor's note: Some captions have been edited for length and clarity.
