When I first came to Long Beach Calif,I stayed with my older sister-upon my first day there she schooled me as she was leaving for work-"now Diane you cant talk to strangers here,like you can back home-TALK TO NO ONE" they will kidnap,rape,and kill...with all that said i decided to take a walk-see the area alittle...I walked along ocean Blvd and wound up in a small place called Belmont shore,,i then realized that id walked to far and was now lost! I saw a young woman pulling into her garage so i approuched her and told her that i was new to the area and lost i asked if i could borrow her phone-she told me NO,i then walked away and then thought maybe she thinks im going to steal her phone..so i then asked could you please call this phone number and tell them where i am,She told me NO..so i walked along,still not seeing a payphone,and that darkness started to fall-i then started crying..wondering how i would find my way back..needless to say,i later found a phone and made my way home safely..later that evening i told my sister of what happened and she replied"Diane the people here are like that for a reason",there are so many bad people here that they take the good out of you...I thought back to my father-that would never pass up a women stranded on the side of the road-and sometimes he even fixed their cars-for free..I just smiled to think of how lucky i am to even know that there really are kind people in the world-it starts at home

Aw, sorry the folks in Long Beach and in many CA areas aren't the friendliest. Thank God you made it back safe and sound though! I lived in Texas last year for a few months and was in awe of the kindness from strangers. It really warms the heart and I'll never forget it!
