I grew up in a small city, in a neighborhood that had all of the social opportunities of the suburbs with the diversity of an urban environment. In retrospect, it was the best of both worlds. I lived in a fairly safe community that offered the freedom to roam. I had lots of kids to play with. But I was also exposed to different kinds of people, learning acceptance and equality.

Here are some insights into the age-old debate.
