I just re read your thoughts....this town used to be without an ounce of violence.
It is a beautiful place, but in the last many years many things have happened (have you heard about the American Amanda and the case of the Halloween murder? this is the city of that crime)
Many times the papers are filled with "foreigner kills..." or "might have been a foreigner". And that does not help the image of foreigners, at all!
I guess we have to start with the very young, tyring to make them into good students and good young people. Because it is so easy to fall into racism, and violence considering what the young are like nowadays.
good knowing you
what a battle
but I do believe that the little things can help
they HAVE to.....
reading your words moved me....
i am almost speechless (difficult for me)
Please stay in touch
I can imagine not knowing what you can do...surrounded with the newest crime
where DOES one begin
maybe writing about it, expressing it, trying to see who and where someone has the answer
but you look like a sweet sensitive soul
thanks for sharing it with me
Yes the crime rate dropped 23 percent during I think a 7-week period in the summer of 1993 during the months of june and July. Here's a site that tells more: http://www.alltm.org/pages/crime-arrested.html. Thanks for asking.
