Comment on Walking with keys… by Jo @ you had us at hello.
You raise such an important topic, but sadly I think the problem is going to get worse when you hear about the drug problem in Australia rising. Combine that with pathetic slap on the wrist style punishment we have in Australia?!!
I wouldn’t walk in the dark in suburbs these days. Having said that I’ve always felt safe being tall. Does that sound weird? Statistically most criminals are short so I reason my fears with that thought and also think “surely they have better places to be than spooking me” to get by. Plus I can yell really loudly that would scare the bejesus out them so living with my head in the clouds seems to be method of protection.
I’m not sure how we can make our lives safer though. It upsets me how vulnerable the elderly are. Breaks my heart when I they suffer. Harsher penalties would surely make a difference?
Great post lovely x
