Watching a neighborhood go downhill
For anyone in Nashville, you're probably familiar with the Nolensville area..... :ahhhhh:
I lived there for around six years and watched the gang tags sprout up everywhere like crabgrass. Add loud music, barred windows, billboards completely in non-English, litter everywhere, police sirens, and starting to "get used to" a police chopper flying overhead...
I've since moved out, but occasionally I go back to go to the world market, one of the best grocery places in Nashville, where I can get foreign foods I can't get anywhere else. They've got the best seafood market, too.
And the last time I went, I noted there's now an armed security guard. I can only imagine what happened to prompt that. :frown:
An armed security guard at a grocery store.
On the plus side, she was armed with a 1911.
You MIGHT be surprised....
Didn't COLOMBINE happen in Colorado? And wasn't there a school shooting in a very small town in Kentucky or Mississippi?

Just because you don't see it...doesn't mean it's NOT there.
