My Community

John Jr
June, 2011

Shepherdsville, Kentucky is where my community is. We have a very small community but pretty much very easy going. There are some issues around my community that may have racism issues such as, gender, looks, or speech in school or sometime even with jobs on who and when someone can work somewhere. These are really little problems that we have and if you ever visited you would see this as well. In my community the members that live near me do look like me in many ways. Mostly because I live in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, that are all white skinned that lives around me. Most of the people who are in my community are females, which is weird because you would think it would be even. Now we are also different in my community because some of us are short, tall, fat, skinny, have brown hair or even have blond hair. I know my son has blond hair and I have brown. We look a like but the hair color is completely different. The leaders that we have in our society actually treat people like me very well. We get respected just like others who do not look like me. There is not a lot of racism in my community compared to other places. There is an issue in school with bullying but its basically picking on anyone and not just one individual who may be different. Our leaders look at our society as we are all the same time of person. I believe that others in my community treat people like me the same that they would treat their own mother. The reason I feel like this is because everyone around that lives in Shepherdsville, Kentucky actually sees one another as a brother or sister. I moved here from Mount Washington, Kentucky and I have never seen so many people know one another in such a big environment. People in Shepherdsville are so friendly to one another as well as to the new comers. It used to be when a person of a different culture or race came to Shepherdsville that people of the society would not be as friendly but we have grown into a better community and actually offer for more and more to come. Now there may be innicdents where people in my community treat some people different. In this storey at http://www.wave3.com/story/14663811/hearing-held-for-cat-torture-suspect, this was about a guy from shepherdsville who tortured cats for a experiment. Now I will say that a lot of people in our community do look at him different and may be some racism there because of the type of person we know now he is. My texts and work manuals actually contain information about a lot of people and other businesses. I work as a third party administrator with insurance companies. We learn all about how other people all around the world live their lives and see what they can actually be reimbursed with their medical by our company. My texts sometimes have conversations about others in my community but never anything bad. I have learned over the years that everyone has regrets and if you feel that down the road you may regret texting or saying something, then you shouldn’t at all. I don’t believe that the local media represents people like me. I watch the news or read about it online every single day. I see and hear so many things that state there was a robbery, child abuse, or murder that it floors me that there are people out there like that. I feel that in Shepherdsville, which is close to Louisville, Kentucky is a very calm community. Seeing things on the media about even child abuse I don’t feel that they are really showing what type of community we are. Some people decide on their own time to make wrong decisions. One example is at this website from this storey http://www.wave3.com/story/13717196/bullitt-county-mother-behind-bars-on-child-abuse-charges. This is about a Girl who is a young mother like myself but let someone abuse her son. She never reposted it and that is why she is jail. But the more you read about the storey they still are researching and they believe…
