My experience with Bernards Township is that of any review for it on Urban Dictionary. Basically, most people here seem to have no idea of what happens outside in the real world. People in this town often value money and connections over the personality and quality of people. I would love to see people become a bit more empathetic to those less fortunate than themselves because they have the money and resources to really make a change for the better.
