Waking Up The Neighbours

Raft3r was watching the news this morning when a report came in about Baltimore being compared to a third world city.

I was instantly hooked. If they mention Manila, Raft3r would just flip. 

Fortunately, there wasn’t any. A sigh of relief was in order.

Baltimore is not a safe place. Even local police will tell you that. But to be compared to a third world city, Baltimore must really be in deep shit.

Every night at exactly past midnight, I am awakened by the sounds of police cars and/or ambulances with their alarms way up high. 

I pity hotel guests staying on lower floors. Raft3r is on the 26th and the sound is still way too loud.

On more than a few occasions, I also noticed police helicopters with their search lights on. That can’t be good, right?

So at night before I lay myself to sleep, I say a prayer to keep everyone safe.

After all to be given another day to live is the best gift one can receive.
