Downtown is beautiful because they have nearby ferry,waterfront somehow they need to get new businesses to come to downtown. Get tourists to come here.

    Niche User:Dear Review Committee,

    The over all experiences of living in the area showed me three important lesson. What does that person do when he/she are facing invisible wall that ensnare the individual from the true inheritances that he/she should live in.

    My first lesson, I learned was the obstacle of Limitation. Their are many forms of limitation for instant, financial limitation or financial restriction. I would consider 90 percent of the people in that community faced financial bondage. I assume, if it where not so, probably, people had move to different communities that is appropriate for their living stander.

    The second lesson, I learned was the obstacle of bondage mentality. For instant poverty mentality. I noticed that people that lived under that kind of way thinking adopted the temporary deception as reality. Furthermore, in some cases the individual might start believing that deception of permerme way of living.

    The last lesson, I learned is active hope. I emphasizes on the word " active" . How can we distinguish those two opponent? One is the desire of hopping for better. Hopping to be in a better position than the current situation. On the other hand side Active Hope is to be in a physical movement such as pursing steps that helps the individual to come out of the current situation that holds them down!

    In my observation I had encounter one particular case of a person that stopped moving. I wonder for some many time what where the reasons that that person stopped moving forwards towards their inheritances? I came to conclusion that not moving reflects the internal level of faith and believing that determines wheatear that individual reaches his/her inherences.

    I learned that My neighborhood and city needs strong Women and Man of Faith that are not perverted of false deception and thinking in order to reach their inheritances. I am one of them!

    Fayetteville

    • City in North Carolina
    • 497 reviews
    Niche User:This place is very good for older people or teens who care about education because the High School is very good. The houses are really nice if you look hard enough and get past the lower income housing. Businesses are okay. The only real shopping center nearby is Camden crossing or Millstone theater with a few private-owned shops. People are friendly and the neighborhoods are really good so I would've lived here if I was an adult and didn't have high enough income to live in California. Its good if you like the countryside but city-goers would be bored. I can picture Hope Mills overall becoming more commercialized with more to do in the future because businesses are slowly but surely growing.
