Freak out!

Yesterday, while minding my own business and eating lunch at Wendy’s, I witnessed someone firing a gun in the general direction of someone else. I hesitate to call it a “shooting” because I don’t know that anyone was actually hit. Nonetheless, I was, and still am, rather freaked out about it. I mean, it’s not like I was in a bad part of town, or even that this city is particularly dangerous, as cities go. But the fact that this all went down in broad daylight, at Wendy’s, of all places, makes me feel rather unsafe. All I could think about was what if I had been in the parking lot, and even worse, what if I had been in the parking lot with the kids.   It’s as if the blinders have fallen off, and everything I love about this city is overwhelmingly outweighed by one stupid man with a gun.
