I loved growing up in Lorain, OH. The city is between Cleveland and Sandusky (home to Cedar Point amusement park) and is so culturally diverse. My mom was born overseas and Polish was her first language and when they moved to this predominately Hispanic town it changed a lot of the way her younger siblings were raised. When she met my dad who was Italian (born and raised in Lorain) and had my sister and I, they continued to show us the best things about each nationality in the area. Lorain still has yearly International festivals full of Puerto Rican, Polish, Italian, Greek, Southern and Slovak foods and the parades are beautiful. When I moved to my current city, I was shocked over the lack of diversity and the horrible racism and comments that people make.

The best thing was the diversity. But, there is also bad. This is a city that a steel mill and car factory shut down and crush the town. When most of your population is employed by factories and they shut down, crime rises. Drug issues are prevalent as is gang activity.
