Most people will say that their hometowns hold a special place in their hearts. Others will say they will not miss where they came from and look forward to bigger and better horizons. So whether you fall into the former or the latter, everyone has an origin story. Much like how Batman tries to make Gotham better by fighting crime; I fight the negativity associated with my hometown of Danville,IL. I do this by looking at all the wonderful things that the city has to offer.
As you will see in my video, Danville is the hometown of several celebrities like Dick Van Dyke. Last year, he made a homecoming trip and the town was full of excitement to welcome him home. Besides hometown celebrity, Danville offers a wide variety of culture that is captured by the downtown area.
Another important thing about this city is that it contains some of the most important people in the world: my family. Words cannot describe how much my family means to me. They come first in all that I do and I will never regret that. When you have a unit that loves and supports you unconditionally, you cherish that and never let go. So a big part of what makes me think so positively about this city is that I associate it with my family.
When I started this assignment, I knew I wanted to make my family the focus of the video. However, there is only so much that you can get done when you have a toddler whose main goal in life is to play with you. So I got what I could of said toddler (my sister) and then worked my way up. I was stumped on what I could do for the rest of the video because I had limited time with my family. However, due to a car breakdown, I was stuck in town for another day and had time to go explore the downtown area and get inspiration. That trip ended up being a blessing and fruitful.
I hope that you enjoy my video and get a little peek at my life at home. Thanks for viewing!
