I have never lived anywhere else since I was born. When I was a kid, the area was generally okay. It was safe for kids to be outside. Now, it's near dangerous for kids to be outside by themselves. The crime rate had increased since I was born, but got a little better. My town is really run down and people have stopped taking care of our community.

Pitcairns level of crime is s problem and I wish that would be controlled. The way the community is falling apart is also something that bothers me, when I was younger everyone got along and everyone was nice to each other nowadays that is not the case.
We have decent business services. In my community we have what we need: gas stations, butcher shops, and hair salons. Anything else we would need would require us leaving the town, which is okay because the nearest town with all needed resources is within 10 minutes of driving. For my community being as small as it is we have a decent amount of businesses.
