Today we held a complex-wide garage sale for about 6 hours. While it was a fun day to be out in the sun, everyone who came out couldn’t stop talking about the stabbing incident that happened the night before, at the McDonalds literally just steps away from our home.
Last night I was somewhat irritated by the sound of multiple sirens coming from all directions. I figured there was an incident. I just didn’t realize how serious it was. And I could only imagine the horror on the faces of those eyewitnesses.
Do I feel safe? By and large, yes. I suppose it is a byproduct of growth and progress of the community. But I’m starting to be concerned about the safety of my neighborhood.
