As the crime rate rises in my home town, many people feel unsafe walking alone by themselves late at night. And I can’t say I blame them. The streets just aren’t as safe as they used to be.
Take my friend Alex, for example. She only moved here from New York City a couple of months back and on her first night here she witnessed a robbery. She said that she felt safer back home because she used to carry pepper spray. This is quite a popular thing in the states and I’m surprised that you cannot buy it over here. So I advised her to go and get some pepper spray at safetygirl.com. Hopefully she’ll now feel safe enough to come down to my poetry reading next month. It is on the same road as the police station after all.
