Though I grew up in a neighborhood setting, I am not blind to the happenings of other areas throughout my city. I know that due to sense of disparity, there are individuals who may steal, lie, or cheat for money.

However, throughout the last several years, the number of welfare program and service agencies have exponentially grown. These groups strive to not only provide food and shelter to families, but also to put good people to work so that they can be independent and active members of society.

I myself have participated in amazing events such as food drives, clothes drives, and Habitat for Humanity buildings. These activities show those who are scared that people in the community want to help them, and decrease the prevelance of crimes.

As for the crimes that may still occur, the police force works with integrity and compassion to keep all citizens in my home safe.

I was raised in, and by, this town. For as long as I can remember I have had a strong group of family and friends around me. This town taught me the importance of working hard, and it also taught me the value of honesty and friendship. Within many towns of today's age, children can be left to fend for themselves and can become lost in the world. I was blessed, and I never felt alone in my town.

Currently several neighborhoods and parks are being built throughout the town to accommodate for the growing size of the schools. The educational system within the county has flourished so brilliantly that everyone wants to move to my hometown. I am proud to have been raised in this area.

If I was given the opportunity to do it all over again, I would not hesitate to choose my town over any other. In Canton, GA, every individual is accepted for who they are, and given the opportunity to do amazing things.
The traffic during the weekdays is horrendous. People keep building houses which causes more construction on the roads and more people living in the area that backs up traffic.
