BACKSTORY: I live in a pretty low crime area where the couple blocks surrounding my house is generally quiet with little to no crime, but about 6 blocks away is a fairly high crime area.

So I was sleeping and got woke up about 5:30 this morning to approximately 8-10 gunshots that sounded like they were right in my back yard. I have not been able to go back to sleep but haven't heard anything since.

It ridiculous that these young thugs can't even take one day off from trying to shoot each other to celebrate one day with their family. It sounds like I am going to have to begin looking for a different area to live now!!

This is why I am looking for a different house farther away from the crime area. I live about 5 blocks from where the area is bad but we still hear the gunshots. It is awful and sometimes scary when it sounds so much closer than what it actually is.

Where we used to live, on Christmas, New Years.. Just about every holiday there were gunshots. It was a form of celebration.

And the fireworks. My god. EVERY. FUCKING. HOLIDAY.
