Depending on the opportunities given to me in the future I could see my self living here my whole life. The city of Muskegon is fun to visit, although it's a work in progress from the past factories that are turning into rubble. It's really a beautiful spot being right on the coast of Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake. Like any other city, there is an area that hooligan people live and enjoy killing one another in gang fights or just to rob someone. Downtown Muskegon doesn't seem like that sort of area but Muskegon Heights certainly wouldn't be a place to visit. Overall it's a fantastic place to live, work, and contribute in society!

Not really having to experience this first hand in any sort of way, I believe our police force do a fantastic job. They keep the general public safe in anyway possible and should be praised for doing so!
The area I live in is awesome. There's always lot's to do. Lake Michigan is absolutely beautiful. The bad thing about Muskegon is that there tends to be a lot of violence in certain parts. In the future I see myself working in a nearby place as either a nurse of Physical Therapist.
