Every night, I hear gun shots going off like mad....5, 6, 7 or more times. It's not directly outside of my window but in the surrounding neighborhoods. This city has not been safe for a long time but it's getting worse and worse. If I could move right now, I would without hesitation.

It doesn't help that when other cities "clean up" their neighborhoods, they are sending the violence here.

This is not the California you see on TV.

The shots only used to be fired once in a while but that's not so anymore.

Sometimes, I wish those images of everyone in CA living by the beach were true. I would much rather hear crashing ocean waves.

All of the other violence going on in the world is tragic. It's sad that people can't even live a among each other and in peace.

As you go about and live your lives, remember not to get angry over the small stuff.

Talk to you soon. :)

Stay healthy! :)

    I couldn't imagine! How stressful and awful that must be! I have never heard a gun shot unless I was in the country and it was hunting season. Best wishes.

    I remember those California nights. Gunshots, police helicopter spotlights, sirens, 1 hour news about all the violence. We moved away took me a year to be able to let down the walls of not trusting people & realize news can be only 30mins & it's Ok.
