Before i lived in Long Beach i lived in Compton and Los Angeles the bad parts i should say, but my dad lived in long beach and i loved it-- home away from home. I always seen long beach as my safe haven a place were i was accepted. I went to lausd and cusd schools and it was the worst childhood experience in my life i was teased, rediculed, and not accepted because of my disability, but one year i begged to go to school in long beach and it was like a dream nobody talked about my disability and everybody liked me, that day i told myself i would never leave. It will only get better.

People here in downtown long beach are the best. Nice, easy going-- like new day hipsters, and everone is accepted or atleast you don't have to worry about being judged. My city is a bully free zone, Autism support group and welcome those of the gay community with open arms, long beach to me is a safe haven for all.
I won't stay in long beach forever, but there will be a few things i will definitely miss.
