Live in places where lots of seniors and kids are visible, noisy and active. I’m not talking about contrived suburbia where every house is a castle and nobody sees each other. The places I mean have high walkability, town squares and areas to gather for the community.
The rest of the age groups can take care of themselves. High visibility of kids and old people are an indicator that a community is safe, nurturing and alive. Kids represent the tomorrow and the older generations carry the wisdom and anchor the community.
