Last week, in the back yard of my home, there was a real live shoot out. It was a gunfight, with lethal ammunition.
Thankfully, I was away from home that evening. When I returned the next day, my neighbors told me that some sort of local dispute had migrated into my yard, and gunfire erupted.
Needless to say, I was deeply upset that my little neighborhood of mostly single family homes, and many children, was the location of such extreme violence.
I am still very troubled about this incident, and I fear that more violence will occur.
