    Again a serious crime in my block in the Holmesburg.section. Last Wednesday morning there was a shooting on the corner of my block. Unofficial talk, says the man was a neighbor in my section of Building. Last night I was already too frightened to get off the bus at Ditman Stop. But Jackson Street has always made me very nervous after dark. It’s barely an alley way. We are blocks from a Prison. There is no Full sized Supermarket within walking distance. Now this morning , I find that there has been a home invasion , with a knife in my Building. I feel so helpless right now.
