I would like to see more tolerance and acceptance of diversity in the area. There is much diversity, yet not much tolerance of one another.

When I first moved here it wasn't. I went through a couple of periods in my life where I hated being here, but I accepted the fact that everything can't be controlled.
I would never live here again, the people aren't very friendly unless your entire family is from around the area. There is nothing to do around here. I see this area as mostly being farm lands forever because of the amount of fields now. It'snot very exciting now. People don't interact as much because everything is so far apart.
