Welcome to Galestine City. 

As one of the most poor cities in the nation, and as one without many good names to it, the citizens of Galestine City (A.K.A. "Gale City") face dangerous streets practically every day. The local parks and community centers are empty, whereas years ago, it was always full of children running around and having fun, making friends and being kids. Now, you barely even see kids leave their own home. It’s believed that the reason why things are like this now is because of the major influence of drugs, child abductions, and violence on the streets. Others believe that children just don’t have time to leave home because of the poor conditions they live in, where they have to stay and take care of the house, take care of siblings, finish homework, or even help their parents attempt to keep their home-life stable enough to survive a week. Some, even believe that parents are keeping their children home to be safe from the dangers of Galestine, or they might be forcing them to stay to make sure that they keep their mouth shut about what might actually be going on at home. As a whole, the city's just not what it used to be. Everyone always talks about “the good ol’ days” when “things were good,” and everyone agrees that there needs to be change. So that’s what they’re going to get.
