Advantages of Country Life
Just as more and more people are beginning to realize, there are many advantages in country life. Despite the fact that I have never lived in the country, I feel that life down there seems to be very pleasant and fulfilling.
One advantage to living in the country is that the schools are smaller, thus allowing the teachers to work closer with their students. Country teachers are able to know their students personally and learn of their needs and interests. Thus, students in country schools do not feel as if they were just part of a large mass of animals; instead, they feel as if someone really cares whether they are learning useful information or just acquiring a grade. The most important part of country life is the closeness one gains to nature. By just stepping out of a house and looking around, one can see trees, grass, animals, and everything nature has to offer us. Just to look up in the sky at night and to see the many thousands of stars glimmering in the dark, or to see lightning bugs swarming around tall, majestic trees gives one such a feeling of closeness to nature that one may never want to leave but stay there forever, watching and wondering in awe at the beauty of nature.
I know that I will always love the country, and someday I hope I have the opportunity to live there and enjoy all the advantages that it has to offer, everything that the city could never hope to provide.
