I have the standard set of beliefs as most people; don’t do anything illegal or to harm anyone, be a decent person, help those who need it. However, I’ve struggled most with the old adage of “treat others as you want to be treated”. It seemed simple enough to me as a child, and thus I began to do just as the age-old advice said. In most instances I have gotten what I’ve expected in return. My grades reflect my efforts at school, the treatment of me by my sister was indicative of how many names I had called her that day.

In the 1800’s in Quechee, the mills grew quickly and the population also grew, “And because the water needed to generate power is usually stronger lower down the mountain, this helped to spur what was to become a common Vermont pattern: the movement of industry, and population away from the hilltops and into the valleys” (Albers 156). In the 1950’s, the mills were starting to close. After 200 years the town shut down. In 1962, the mills shut down completely. In the late 1960’s, the investors built a huge hotel in the community. “Today, Quechee Lakes Resort is one of New England’s finest resorts for seasonal and year-round owners” (“Quechee History”). The Vermont Institute of Natural Science is nearby, and attracts over 200,000 visitors per year (“Quechee History”).
