Where I live is known as the number one capital of the world! East Saint Louis Illinois. To me it doesn't seem like that when I walk outside I see people having conversations and making memories but to others it may seem like the worst place on earth to live. My family grew up here so it's interesting to see where they would play or to even see what house they lived in. If I had to live here again in my future I would be ok with that, because this where my family rooted from. In the future I can only hope for the best. There are some many people from my area that are so talented, so smart, so determined to make something out of themselves. I plan on doing that so I can only hope great things for East Saint Louis Illinois.

Crime rate has only gotten worst in my area. With all the shootings, the crime rate has done nothing but increase. The police are very visible to the community but they can't stop everything that goes on. East Saint Louis has always been ranked either #1 or #2 for crime rate and that concerns me a lot.
