Treat Thy Neighbor As Thyself

There’s no many things biblical about Wilmette, but it fits. Everyone who lives here has a sense of compassion for their neighbor. Throughout the day, you’ll find many of them out and about, which I found unusually at first when I first moved here. As a suburb, I also found the downtown to be a strange addition. Not many small have a downtown area, which I like. Commutes into the city are a drag, but there’s also public transit so driving really isn’t the only way to get into the city. Schools here are high on standards, though I feel for average student this may pose a bit of discouragement when getting them to do better and what not. All that aside, the community is very active. In times of crisis everyone is generally quick to pitch in. There are a number of charitable and civic organizations sprinkled throughout, which a wonder reflections of the towns overall spirit.
