What Community Means To Me

Jul 25

According to Wikipedia, community is defined as “community is a social unit of any size that shares common values”   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community
According to the dictionary, Community is defined as “a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage.”  http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/community

Community to me is so much more than the above:

1. Everyone working together to better our community and environment

2. Giving back to people in the community (charitable)

3.  Standing behind families when they need help and support

4.  Being respectful and kind to others

5.  Going above and beyond to be thoughtful with no reasons at all or personal gain

6. Parents working with other parents to be the best examples for other children, and making decisions for what is best for them.

7. New friends

8. New experiences

9. Establishing collaborative relationships with others to work together for a brighter future and teaching our children to give


10.  That feeling of pride you have when you have done something great for someone else

All in all, it is about making a difference in the lives of others and having a support system in time if ever needed.   I live in a wonderful community in Newmarket and no matter what is happening on the roads or around the city, it is one of the most giving places I have ever lived.  The community you live in makes an impact on your life so be happy, go out today and enjoy your surroundings.
