Welcoming Strangers in a Small Town

Orange Mound, Tennessee

Story Narrative:

"Living in a small town can teach you different things. It gives you the opportunity to connect with your fellow community members, because you have no choice. It's like a very large family, living in a small community, you go down the street, you recognize somebody you see, you say hello, because you have a relationship with that individual. If ever there's someone that comes into your town that you don't know, you make the true effort to get to know them, because you want them to be included in your family.

Living in a small town would be a great experience for everybody. It teaches you how to respect others, and to understand what's going on in different people's lives. I admire the fact that I live in a small community."
