Thanks so much for all your responses!
@aceinspp, you said 'traveling now days to other country's is non to safe. There is lots to see here in the USA'.
I am from 'another country'. I am from Germany. And from a German perspective it is really unsafe in the US. People are running around with guns on the streets. Kids have to walk through metal detectors in schools because there are guns in schools. There are shootings in schools all the time. In cinemas. And there are an awful lot of people shot or tasered by police for no reason at all. There are people shot by 2 or 3 year olds with a weapon that they found somewhere.
That doesn't happen in Germany. People in Germany have told me to please, please be save in the US, because it's so dangerous here. Friends were scared and would never consider moving to the US.
I've done it and I've met so many lovely people here. I lived in Spanish Harlem and Brooklyn and even Alphabet City in New York City. I've lived in San Francisco too and now I'm in a small town.
I know that there are many reports of bad things happening in Mexico and Columbia. I've been to all countries of Central America except Panama by now. I've lived 6 months in Mexico. I was in Nicaragua and Guatemala. And I can tell you from my experience that the less people own, the more welcoming they are.
So, I'm thankful that you worry about our safety because **** can happen everywhere. I just saw a guy who dropped of his son at daycare and he was wearing a gun on his belt. That terrified me, you have no idea.
We'll take care and watch out for risks. But we're not staying 'at home' because we're scared to meet the unknown. At home is a place in my heart since I've moved 28 times in my whole life and don't go back 'home' to a physical place, or where my parents live. I've never lived where my parents live.
Anyway, that's my way of living. Everyone is different
