    Racist. Homophobic. Stereotypical hick-ville. I'm sure this town is "ideal" to raise a family in. However, from my experience living here as a military kid, I have known this town to be very closed-minded and always in-the-know about drama within the community. The majority of the town is related somehow, and they aren't planning on leaving anytime soon.
    The town is great, I love living here. Most of the people are so nice and friendly; you can't walk through the grocery store without knowing someone. Living near a military base also insures there are new interesting people to meet. Though there isn't much to do in town other than swim we have a mall about 15 minutes away in Wichita Falls, and there is plenty to do there. The schools are great and they have anti bullying month and the 21 days of kindness challenge. They also participate in other weeks for no texting and driving along with many others. The teachers are always there for the students. I feel like a learned a lot while there and making friends was easy for everyone. The city makes sure everything is kept up with and you can always see them driving around making sure the grass is never to long or there isn't a problem. Burkburnett may be a small town but it has a big heart and I wouldn't change anything.
    Like any town, Burkburnett has their battles with crime. However, being a smaller community, we have the benefit of having our neighbors look out for each other. Luckily, we have had very few major crimes and the police are right on it when/if it does happen. We are also lucky enough to have police at every event and constantly watching out for our town.
