I'm afraid
Thu Jun 25, 2009 5:39 pm


I'm really afraid to live in my city, today 6 was killed as mere Al Capone and/or Dillinger style in Chihuahua City and 10 in Juarez and are under the daily standard. This kind of violence is a daily matter here. It's a shame to live in a Country like this one.

That's tough, Julio. I don't know what size your town is but I am always concerned when I hear about the violence in our town too. The media gives a lot of coverage to deaths in war zones but in actuality there are more deaths in major American cities than in any of those. It can get scary at times but I still believe that most people are good and decent. It is just the bad ones that get on the news.

This is so sad to hear, We had spent five years in Mulege Baja, we would love to go back and try to enjoy.
In 1958 & 59 I was stationed a Biggs AFB El Paso texas
An spent a lot of my free time in the border towns,yes there were some trouble spots, but not like todays world.

That's real tough Julio! It is really sad when there is so much of this on the news, it's even worse if you are living close to it. Be safe!

The sad fact is it's probably going to get worse, the poor economy helps to fuel it.

It's not easy to do that John, we have a small company we started 12 years ago and at least, as of today, we are still alive and working. About the violence things, this is a worst situation every day.

I would like to leave from here...

Thanks.
