I am a physician with a pursuit of a Master's. I have lived in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia and the Seattle area. Louisville is the most gracious, friendly, open town I have lived in. I am conservative and it has been a breath of fresh air to live with people who accept differences in people, yet stand firm in their own beliefs. I have experienced the rath of liberalism and their inability to allow differing opinions from their own to coexist. Louisville allows this, while embracing a local heritage, kindness and faith like no other. You can have the large metropolis, the crime, the traffic, the rudeness, the lack of tolerance in the places I have lived! Louisville is a breath of fresh air in a world of compromise!
