Lamar treats everyone as if they are your family. If you needed help or anything, your neighbor would offer you the help you need. Lamar will always feel like home. It is my favorite place to spend my free time. In Lamar, everyone knows everyone. You know everyones family and what they may be going through. Lamar is not just a community or town, we are a family. We would do anything for our neighbors and I love the environment.
Lamar was a great place to grow up when I was a kid. People were friendly and school was educational but fun. We didn’t worry about much because there was always someone who cared. Now our community sucks. People stopped caring about others and only about themselves. Our youth have nothing to entertain them so they turn to drugs or sex at a pretty young age. There’s so much bullying at school and teachers who don’t seem to care anymore. I think if there was something like a rec center within walking distance of the school it would help at least cut down on crime being committed by our youth. They have nothing to entertain themselves outside of school.
I’ve lived in Lamar my whole life and overall had a good experience as far as my family. However, due to how I am and how conservative a lot of the towns people are, we don’t mesh well
