This essay is about the lessons Ive learned growing up in You can learn many different things when you grow up in a small town Ive learned these lessons through painful times and others Ive learned through times of joy All the lessons you learn in life are valuable There have been times in my life for instance when my sister passed away in 1995 when our family needed friends We were going through a very difficult time in our lives The citizens were really great to us They did everything they could to console us in the loss of my sister They brought over food sent cards and flowers and came by for visits They offered to take me places to give my parents time alone and invited me into their homes so I could get away They helped my parents learn how to grieve for the loss of their daughter The people in this town are very kind and considerate when it is a time for mourning On the other hand they werent as kind and considerate when my parents divorced shortly after my sister passed away They gossiped behind our familys back They didnt ask us directly about what was really going on they just listened to the gossip and continued to spread it They had no idea what that did to me I mean what could I do about what my parents had done to each other They just looked at me like they felt so sorry for me They didnt try to see if I was doing ok or if I was hanging in there I figure if they felt so sorry for me then why didnt they try to stop the rumors and nonsense going around People can be so mean and cruel when they want to be especially teenagers They just are at the age when they dont care about hurting other people They just dont understand
