Introduction: Diversity in Communities
Diversity is what makes everybody different and helps people to learn from one another. Imagine if everybody was the same and every community did things in the exact same way – life around the world would be boring. Diversity in communities brings new ideas and creativity to help enhance unity among the people who make up the community. According to Boylan (2009), diversity makes a community stronger and happier in the essences that change is good and resources that are more possible are created overtime.

Another similarity between the communities is that recycling and conserving energy are important. Each community is well established and self sufficient in the terms that they have near by gas stations, schools, churches and grocery stores. Most of the communities demonstrate unity in the mere fact that they respect their neighbors and are willing to help each other.
Difference among the Communities
The common differences are population size and business markets. Some of the communities are primarily farming communities, while others are based around a university and teaching hospital, or a small island community, which is just a short drive across a bridge to a major city. Some the communities in the country use horses, tractors and four wheelers as a means of transportation, while the communities in the larger cities use public transportations or cars to get around.
Some of the communities discussed rely on tourist season during the summer months to keep the local restaurants and locally owned stores in business while other communities rely on the land and weather to grow crops to support their families. The smaller communities create employment for the locals by employing them in local stores and restaurants however, the wages are minimal but guaranteed. The larger communities in which the farmers reside seem to create their own living by selling crops and live stock.
