NYC Has Become So Overwhelming And One Big War Zone!

NYC Has Become So Overwhelming And One Big War Zone!

I Was Sheltered As A Kid, I Never Could Quite Understand Why My Mother Wanted To Be Home Rather Than Being Outside With Friends Or Partying Late At Night As A Teenager. I Grew Up And Was Raised In The Bronx, Which Happens To Be One Of The Five Boroughs Of New York City. The Bronx Was Created In 1898, And Bronx County Was Created In 1914. According To Wikipedia, The Word "Bronx" Originated With Faroese-Born (Or Swedish-Born) Jonas Bronck, Who Established The First Settlement In The Area As Part Of The New Netherland Colony In 1639. 

Before Migrating To The Bronx, My Mother And I Lived In Harlem Where Most Of My Mother’s Side Of The Family Grew Up. We Lived A Few Places In The Bronx To My Knowledge. I Remember Living On Morgan Ave Near Gun-hill Road, Fulton Ave Near Crotona Park, Parkchester Condominiums, And Co Op City. 

Growing Up In The 90’s For Me Didn’t Seem Half As Bad As It Does Now For The Generation Who’s Growing Up In This Era Now! Sure I’ve Lost People I Once Hung Out With To Gun Violence When I Was A Teenager, But These Days It Seems Like So Many Families On My TL Are Losing Their Love Ones To The Streets Even When Their Not The Direct Target. You Can’t Enjoy A Night Out With The Girls Without Being Filled With Anxiety Worrying About If An Event Or Venue Will End Early Because Of An Ignorant Shoot Out. Before People Would Have To Worry About Eating Before They Attend A Cookout Fearing They Will Miss The Food Before It Runs Out, But Now People Are More Concerned About Making It Home In Peace To Their Families When Taking Chances Attending A Mixxy Cookout. 

Just The Other Day A 13 Year Old Black Boy Made Headlines For A Fatal Shooting On A Bronx Sidewalk In The Belmont Section Of The Bronx In Front Of Angels Cafe. This Past Sunday Alone, At Least Ten People Became Victims Of 7 Separate Shootings Within 4 Of The 5 Boroughs In NYC And 3 Of Those Victims Were Ages 13, 19 And 24. All Three Victims Sadly Died From Their Injuries. Ever Since Outside Officially Opened, NYC Has Been At War Making It Unsafe For Innocent By Standers Who Only Want To Enjoy Their Summer. The Best Thing To Do This Summer Is To Travel, Visit Theme Parks, Or Sadly Stay HOME!
