City living and suburban living are inherently different in a myriad of ways. And kids who grow up in the two different environments have completely different experiences. Arguing over who can and cannot walk to school is ridiculous. I grew up in the suburbs and walked to school, but I didn't walk anywhere else. I didn't know how to navigate my way on public transportation, or get to my music lessons, or attend any event without someone's parent providing shuttle service. On the other hand, I could ride my bike down the street without significant fear of getting run over and could spend all afternoon catch frogs in a nearby pond. Ellery's experience has been the opposite; at 13, she can get herself to and from Manhattan but her bike-riding abilities are sorely lacking.
Personally, I think growing up in the city is better. But it is a preference, not an absolute. If I didn't feel that way, I'd be living in the 'burbs. And I can only assume that people in the 'burbs feel the same way about their choice -- they think life in the 'burbs is better so that's why they live there.
Actually, I live in the burbs because that's where my job is. There are lots of reasons that people choose to live somewhere.
I think the point is that nothing bad happens in the burbs, which is why people prefer to live there. Also, blacks.
The point of this thread.
Did you move out right after this violent night?
I want to know what event pushed you over the top...at some point you were sitting in the kitchen, enjoying a cup of Folgers and pulling on a Virginia Slim (you've come a long way baby!) and ruminating about the wreckage that your life had become when you decided that Philadelphia was to blame. Especially since the events of yesterday when XXXXXX XXXXX had said XXXXX XXXXX and then she wanted to XXXXXX XXXX to your XXXXXXX!!! "Well that's it, Philly won't have me to kick around anymore"!
*****Disclaimer: While I think this is exactly what happened I'll need Gio to confirm that it was Folgers and not Nescafe.
