I like that we have land for animals in a pretty suburban area- we are close to grocery stores and the highways. However, drivers are reckless (a kid was killed whilst riding his bike), most people are racist (so much so my friends feel uncomfortable being out and about), people shoot guns regularly and not safely.
The environment an individual is raised in has a large influence on an individual’s values, habits, and overall way of life. So much so that the environment we live and are raised in can ultimately be said to determine every aspect of someone’s personality. South Southeast of Houston, Texas lies a small town where the country style houses lie in and among large grassy fields surrounded by lively oaks, and mighty pines, and humble hemlocks. The birds in this town serenade the ground creatures with a familial tune, and the ranch animals leave a distinct homely aroma in the moist cool air.
Despite all of the negative happenings of the world, my hometown has taught me that what truly matters in life is the people we share our lives with. The friendly communal environment I have spent my life within has fostered this somewhat cliché statement into a principal I base my actions upon.
