Friday Night

Great start to the weekend…..Two gunshot deaths within 3 blocks of me…..And my neighbor across the street came over to tell me his house was burglarized last night.

It’s been a slow decent into chaos and poverty.

Another Saturday in the inner city

I went to my fav laundromat this am for my weekly clothes wash.   Today was different and quite sad…..A woman came in wearing several layers of clothing and an overstuffed backpack. She went to a corner of the laundry and proceeded to peel off all of her outer clothing and with the contents of her backpack loaded everything onto a jumbo washer.
Afterwards she sat outside on the curb until the wash and dry was finished and then proceeded to put on all of the clothing that was washed in layers on her person. She then left walking down a back alley with a stocking cap pulled down to her eyes.
I couldn’t help from being both saddened and upset over this.
