I Hate the City I Live In

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 38 People

    Gangs and Fights

    The city I live in is riddled with gangs and fighting. The school my oldest daughter goes to has fights everyday and there have been weapons envolved. I hate it here and there is no way out. I fear it it is going to send me off the deep end!
