It's a lovely area. I live in between two extremes: Sharon and Wadsworth. Sharon is more rural, with wealthier families. Wadsworth is packed with people, and many of them are not well off. Nevertheless, Wadsworth has a far friendlier atmosphere than Sharon. There is a sort of underlying spirit of goodwill, community, and taking care of one another. My heart aches to see these good people struggling financially.

We are a a small town community where life revolves around Highland High School. There are no hangouts or community centers where people gather to talk and reminisce. What we do have, though, is a love for the kids who participate in any high school extracurricular activity from football to robotics. Whenever there's an event, families show up from all over, regardless if they have a child participating or not. Through this amiability, our community has been a home to families for generations. Moreover, we are no stranger to the "small town" bias. Everybody knows everybody, but there are some who take that too literally.
One facet worth favorable repute in our community is our nature centers, pars, and environment. The three townships that make up our town each have a park for sports and such, but the Cleveland Metro Parks has land set aside in Hinckley (our northern most township) that is enjoyed by people in both our county and in adjacent ones. Whipp's Ledges and Hinckley Lake are used daily by hikers, joggers, and regular people who want to enjoy a day outside. In Sharon Township, field trips were taken to visit Wolf Creek, a wildlife preserve that is located down the street from the elementary school. Visiting this reserve at a young age initiated the respect and reverence i have for nature. It is evident that other citizens in this community feel the same way, because pollution is scarcely a problem.
