Community Matters

By: NNuser

We all know full well that being a member of a community is vital to the success of our world. Communities are an essential part of human existence that impact our world view. The purpose of this discussion is to examine what it means to be a part of a community. We will focus on the concepts of volunteerism and safety in the community.


The community in which I live is rather small and urban. There are a total of nine schools in the area and the population is rather diverse. As a member of a diverse community, I have the ability and responsibility to educate myself about the different cultures and religions that exist within the community. Through this education, I can discover how to better serve the needs of my neighbors—this is what it means to be a part of a community.
