Talking to a guy yesterday, a real New Yorker. I told him that I actually feel safe alone in New York. I am always aware, but not afraid. I expressed that I have been more afraid in Alabama at different times. He replied with, “Yeah, here in New York. Somebody may knock you down and maybe….say…uh….take your purse, but they aren’t gonna kill ya. They just gonna knock you down and run. Those other places they got plenty of room to hide and kill ya.” Y’all don’t worry about me. I don’t carry a purse here. I have a backpack.
