The Area I live in is great. I love it here. its always sunny but its also fresh and usually we have a breeze. this is my home and although there could be changes to make it better I do see myself living here in my future. in the future I see this area helping out the poor more. I see this community caring more about each other and helping out with whatever can be done.
