It is easy for all of us to see what's wrong with our town. The schools, streets, unemployment, race relations, etc. All of them and more have been discussed on topix for years.
It is time to point out some of the good things about our city. Everyone has at least one positive thing to say. I want to know about the people, places or things that make you proud to call Forrest City home.
There are plenty of threads to voice your complaints about it so let's try to keep it positive..........Dumb asses.

Forrest City has great potential! If all the negative and hateful people who just move.
I have lived here over 15 years and found in most cases the community to be welcoming, business helpful,and the schools are working hard to help all students.
We seem to shoot ourselves in our own foot and put it in our mouths by moaning and growning. The poor ecomomic growth is our own fault.

Doing a good job so far, except for the guy who likes armadillos at night. Friendly people, EACC, even proximity to major highway. Positive things to promote and build on.

It was a wonderful place when I was 1 yr old-16 yrs old, but after that things changed, as did the times, and we all became restless and dyed our hair and wore our skirts too short...it was the 60's and MLK and Sweet Willie Wine influnced our thinking...we started being hateful to one another and our little town suffered. The whole country lost its innocence at the same time. I eventually married and moved away but I always longed for FC, I loved it. But now I hate to even come to town to visit relatives, actually I'm afraid to even be in the town. The last time I was there I just wanted to see my old neighborhood one last time, see my beloved street and house where I had the fondest memories, and out of no where black guys started coming out to the car to sell me drugs! I couldn't get out fast enough, and my heart was broken. Sadly, my only good memories are from that long forgotten era and the Friday night lights cheering the Mustangs on.

People here are genuinely nice and laid back as compared to other towns in our general area. They are not so worried about what people think and basically don't care if they get talked about in church on Sunday. Blacks and whites do get along for the most part. There are some radical blacks and crackers but they aren't the majority although at times they seem like it. We just need to understand I 40 is our goldmine and we have the workers for a service oriented direction. We tend to let the naysayers stand in the way of our true potential. We just need someone to take the bull by the horns and move us in that direction. Talk is cheap and that is all we ever do, if we decide that this magic factory is a pipe dream and start dealing with reality, look at what we have and where we are strong we could be better than we once were, but here I am......talking. BTW good productive thread Traveller.

I agree. With the right people in the right positions with motivation, this city could prosper once again.
