I hate that I have to avoid going anywhere at night. I can't take my son many places because I fear for his safety. I have a big scary dog and two guns in my house for protection, but it doesn't feel like enough. My husband works graveyard so I'm home alone with the baby all night. It's a very uneasy feeling.
I just really hate this city and I can't wait to move! Growing up in Iowa, I never thought about stuff like this. We slept with our houses unlocked. If we were running into the store for a second, we left the car running. Then when I moved to Florida I couldn't do those things anymore because it was too dangerous. It seems crazy to me that Florida is less dangerous of a place than aurora is. It's sad.
