[columbia_heights] moving to Girard playground area
- My wife and I have lived in Columbia Heights for over 25 years
and we have never been caught in a crossfire. I know people who
have lived here for over 70 years and nothing like that has ever
happened to them.
Different places have different risks associated with them.
Planes fall out of the sky sometimes. Accidents happen on the
highway. Farmers have tractors roll on them. Skiers run into
trees. People get killed by demented killers in National Parks.
John Glenn hurt himself seriously when he fell in his bathtub.
Living is unsafe. None of us get out alive. I don't think the
2800 block of 15th is much more or less dangerous than living
anyplace else. You are much more likely to be injured or killed
while riding in an auto than going from your residence to you car
and visa versa.
Don't be like the person who moved upon hearing that most
accidents happen to people within a few blocks of their homes.
