Let’s Not Lose Perspective

So I was thinking we are freaking out a bit too much over crime.  Yes, it exists.  This we can all agree.  We need to be aware and we need the MPD to be vigilant.  But, thankfully knock wood, it doesn’t really affect our day to day lives (obviously if you have been a victim you may have a different perspective).  You know after reading many comments from recent posts, I’ve found myself being a bit paranoid.  So I’m walking to Looking Glass Lounge this evening and this big guy with dread locks yells over to me, “Yo!”.  And I’m like oh shit.  I didn’t think I was going to get mugged or anything I just thought I was going to get hassled.  And that is what happens when you are paranoid.  So I say hey.  And the guy turns out to be the nicest guy in the world.  He’s just looking for a friend’s house and we ended up walking together all the way down New Hampshire.  And the dude was super cool.  His Mom used to live in the neighborhood and he did too as a child.  Point is:  let’s give the benefit of the doubt when possible.  A paranoid life is not a pleasant one.  Yes be careful especially in the late hours.  But don’t forget to enjoy what makes this neighborhood one of the best in the city – the people!
