Improvements in the community

Stop and ask yourself how have I helped my community in the past year and how can I improve it. Construction doesn't stop all over Houston especially in our community, should be called the city of construction causing accidents, slowing down traffic, and instead of making new roads the city just patches the road . Poverty keeps growing by the minute putting more people out in the streets, more prostitution and drug dealing in every corner.
