    while the art and culture is beautiful, sexism, racism, and homophobia are run rampant. I have seen corruption in the government negatively effect Adults and children of all races. There are statues of General lee in front of all the schools in low income areas as well as monuments in place to honor others who have committed horrible deeds against humanity. The high level of reported rape that goes unpunished in the Clover dale area is obscene. The amount of report rape committed by Airmen at Currently Stationed at Maxwell and Gunter AFB is un-believable. Redeeming characteristics are amazing, affordable art sold off the walls of family owned businesses. The food in many locally owned restaurants is to die for. The music made by local musicians is unique to this area and moving beyond compare. Housing and rent is very affordable. History here is richly diverse despite hateful narratives from some of those who are in power. The people in the city show unity and strength consistently.

    There does not appear to be a lot of diversity in Montgomery County. The city has a lot of racial tension, even in 2020. There needs to be a fair representation of all citizens. The public schools' rate are very low and it seems as if they only care about the Magnet schools and the public schools are grateful to receive even an afterthought. My high school is focusing on a name change, but there are kids attending the school right now with black mold in the classrooms, the paint is peeling, the school is old and needs much needed updates. Instead of focusing on making the school better for the kids, they are focusing time and funds on changing the name of the high school. Changing the name is not going to benefit the kids.
    Montgomery is a good central location in the state - with mountains, beaches, and large cities all within a few hours drive. Montgomery hosts a plethora of good restaurants for every type of appetite. There are theaters in town that show ballets, concerts, arts of all types. The downtown area has begun to come alive with a walking area to our local minor league baseball field, a riverfront amphitheater, bars, and restaurants.
