Spring is here and it’s a mixed blessing for me. During the winter months, I sometimes feel caved in. Come spring time, I’m anxious to get out and about and visit my friends more and see what’s happening in The Hood.
That’s part of the problem. In the winter, things kind of slow down here. When I say things, I’m taking about drugs and the violence that goes with it.
April showers bring May flowers but here in Over-the-Rhine it also brings more killing and more danger to those of us here who try to be good citizens. In the summer it will get only worse and around August, I’m always anxious for the snow to start falling again.
