Extremely. I've lived here off & on since age 9 and even feel safe walking at night.

Yes...I live out in the country, away from everyone. I love the peace & quite :) ...Plus, my dogs let me know if anyone is around before they even get on my property.

Where I live, there are three known sex offenders within a block of me, and a gas station that has been broken into multiple times recently. However, I have only known about this through second-hand information, and so I have been taught to fear my neighborhood. I have been taught to fear the world, and I don't want to fear anymore. I want to be taught how to defend myself so that I don't have to fear anymore.

I always have my dog with, but late at night I always worry about nasty drunks coming from town and shouting abuse. During the day only people that do not have their dog under control bother me, as my dog is elderly and handicapped just like me.

Friday afternoon. Two hours an a half autside my apartment. A car accidend at the corner I was trying to cross (with lights, who no one respect). Later burglars break the glass of one car and take the bag of a girl in front of the store I was. People from the desk and security go to help her: 2 burglars go from another door and stol all they can. Arriving to my home, a van take the wrong way, having the corner all kind of signals of one way. Why I'm not moving? Where? At least is near my job! And private neigbourhoods are too much expensive. Too old for emigrate . Too few to change the government (people is used to this way of life and dirtiness). Be gratefull the ones who have a safe place. Anyway, I'm gratefull to no live in a war zone like Middlewest or anothers, but could be better too.

I live in a seasonal area-close to the beach. Summertime brings in lots of visitors, not always the kind we like having.

Even though crime is on the rise, I feel safe because I live among a group of people who look out for each other
