Over the years this area has been sort of neglected to say the least. Crime in off the walls, constant prostitution at ungodly hours of the night, and most families are struggling to make ends meet. There are some students around where I live that are going to college, but it is difficult for us to go to college while trying to work to support ourselves and help out all the members of our families.

Prostitution every night, looks and sounds like grand central station. There are condoms and other things left in our yards and in our drive ways. Many children are afraid to walk to school. Most parents have called the police but nothing seems to change. Overall the people in this community are tired of trying to fight crime and afraid of the pimps in our area.
I feel like where I live is a nice place to raise a family. There are schools, grocery stores, and other nearby places that are very convenient at all times. My home also has lots of nice big trees, enough parking, and is a residential home which decreases the traffic. Most of the neighbors living around my home have lived there for years which is nice because we get to know the neighbors well.
