Where is a good place to live and raise a family? I am currently stuck in a rut living in a dying community, (Dayton, Ohio). I am looking for a good school system for my children and a better overall ...

Boy, what a question. With every place in America in a state of panic and fear I doubt very seriously if there is any place one can go where it's truly safe to live. As you might have guessed it by now, we're all in the same materialistic immediate gratification society. Despite what anyone says about the place they exist(live in) in our country, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence--as it were.
It's sort of like Jack Sparrow's magic compass, it points in the direction of your heart's desire. This country's moral and ethical principles lack the virtue to make any move; where crime and happiness, meet somewhere in the middle.
America is being injured by a political system which lacks basic nobility of justice. Justice and nobility exist one with the other. Anyone who depends on churches for stability from the storm of selfishness is on the wrong track already. With gasoline, food, and all the other necessaries of life being controlled by the ones that have it all, they will ultimately become the ones who designate what we all seek---Public Safety and personal security for their own members. This current wave of selfishness and personal agenda will not survive the test of time and nobody is safe(or secure,) until we all reach the same place at the same time.)
As long as we all keep falling for the same ole faces telling us the same ole lies we are all on board a leaky boat wishing to improve the quiality of our lives in a differant time-line. We all depend upon "good people" to get us by during Hard Times; yet those "Hard Times," are everywhere and the people who want us to move to their place of peace eventually draw in a new crowd to yet another place where the nightmare begins again. Be careful that the NEW place you are drawn to has a brighter future; and not the same old crap, you are running from. HOME is where your heart is. Love yourself and Love your kids; You, are the foundation of your own future. God is where you seek Him. I myself believe in the definition that Danial Webster defined Him to be: God(wrote Webster)is "the eternal fountainhead of principle and virtue." One cannot attain VIRTUE, without first findinig PRINCIPLE!
This can happen anywhere YOU want it to be. Even if you are stuck in Anywhere, USA. Be true to yourself and LOVE your kids and you might even find happiness right where you are at. [ Unless you are in a bad scene where you are being abused. ]
