Before moving from Fort Worth, I heard rumors about the environment is Pasadena such as racism and ageism. Upon arrival, I found a very different climate that was acceptable and accessible. I was hired as a Program Director at a community college at age 50. I felt quite comfortable and it matched my military training. The community did not indicate any of the behavior indicated before my arrival.
