My neighborhood specifically is both connected and split. My mom grew up in this house that we live in now. The elders of the community have always known my mom and so therefore we are very close to a few people in the neighborhood. There are other people who've moved here throughout the years that don't seem to bother with anyone. I believe the newer generations have become more coveted anyhow, but they do not interact. Therefore, depending on who you look at, our neighborhood is either joined or disconnected. The people we are connected to are extremely generous, helpful, and nice.

I have lived in my neighborhood for a little over nine years, and while it is a very safe and nurturing environment, it is not for me personally. To me it feels as if little to nothing happens in my neighborhood and I long for spontaneity and creative outlets within the community. If it were up to me, I would not stay in this neighborhood but I would seek out one like it with regards to the type of people that live nearby.

The amount of refugee's living in this area has increased dramatically over the past few years. Instead of trying to fit in they are excessively aggressive and contribute very little to the community. The education system will suffer as a result because teachers will have to spend less time with students who grew up in the area, and more time with new students who are very unappreciative.
