I like to see an improvement in the Abundance of people in one setting. When the outbreak first began, people in my community didn’t take the situation seriously. In fact, it made them gather more it seemed. We have cases but not many deaths, so maybe their eyes have opened more hopefully. Our town is become with less sanitary products and produce. Our stores are closing. This is not the feeling of defeat but a race to the finish line. I appreciate the concerns of our community. Also, the police force are helping greatly from keeping people gathering and cars off the road but they aren’t solving murders. A day in the life of MS.

This town is consisted of mostly blacks and whites. In some parts of the town their is a lot of killing. Some people in this town you meet are really nice but others can be rude, racist, or ignorant. This town as a whole needs a lot of improvement.
This town has been slowly gotten worse over the years. The public school have had the same problem with letting their standers down and having fights on school ground. Finding a job around here is nearly impossible, and even then it's minimum wedge. What sad is that there's so much history, yet nobody cares about improving this small town. I've been here all my life, and it really makes me upset is when I leave I don't want to come back.
