This morning, I read about the London train/bus attacks.

Last week, I read about a man being shot in the block directly behind mine.

Also last week, there was all the story about the Idaho family whose mother, son and mother’s boyfriend were killed, and the youngest son and daughter who were missing. Luckily they found the daughter, but the little boy is presumed dead.

A few months ago, a judge’s family was killed in her home — only a few blocks away from me.

Sometimes I just don’t feel safe here. Or anywhere. And it scares me.

I have to go to work now… and I am not so sure I want to take the El.

It sucks feeling unsafe in my own city.
