I was born at South Bay Hospital. I grew up here. The South Bay is an interesting place to grow up. It’s a very small town- Every time I am out, I run into someone I know. I like that small town feeling. So many of us have gone to school here and send our kids to the same schools. When my son is skating about town, there are people keeping an eye on him (It takes a village). The South bay is also a very big place- spread out (like the rest of Los Angeles) for miles. Sometimes it doesn't seem like a community at all- Los Angeles is the city without a center and the South Bay is a community with many hearts.
I believe this 4 minute movie by super filmmaker Robin Fenlon explains Funism completely.
