Future Voices: “Norfolk has been my life, and the memories I have will last a lifetime”
- Credit: Archant
There's nothing like waking up in the morning to the scent of freshly mowed grass caressing your nostrils. The warm feeling of bliss tranquillity that wraps you like a warm hug. There's no sirens blaring at 4am, disconcerting you from your peaceful slumber. Here there's no contaminated pollutants choking your airways and tarnishing your lungs. This is the countryside.
While some may say we're an isolated dwelling secluded from the 'real world'. I disagree. We're a breath of fresh air in the hustle and bustle of today's society. We may not have the business district of our capital (we've got Norwich), but we've got the spirit and harmony that seems to have evaporated throughout the rest of the country. Where have the times gone where you woke up and thought 'it's good to be alive'? I'll tell you where they are, they're right here in the East of England. The place to be.
Forget rushing to work, drowning your sorrows in a mug of filthy dishwater, being crushed up against a window within an inch of your life on the underground. That's no way to live your life! Feel the breeze flowing through your hail. Feel alive again.
I guarantee to you there's no better place I could have wished to have been raised; Norfolk has been my life, and the memories I have will last a lifetime. Where else would you want to reside?

Future Voices is a section of the EDP that is written by young people. We recently recruited a new group of young people to form the editorial team and as part of their application they had to answer this question: What is the best thing about growing up in Norfolk? This is one of the winning articles.
