really interesting post Riley for me on multiple fronts.
A) growing up we were not part of a neighborhood like that, and why my wife and I choose where we live now...we are very much living in the neighboorhood life and enjoy it. Having my kids be a part of that is WAAAAY important for me.
b) I was recently in my old neighboorhood, nad wanted to stop at my old house...I know the poeple who live there so that wouldnt be an issue...i dont know what that will do for me and I was with my kids for a Long Island visit, so i didint go....but thinking about it...may go with my wife for support...but why i mention this is that the perp and the memories are old, time for us to turn our triggers around....Im not gonna be made to stay away from aneighborhood because of him, he does not have that control over me anymore.
SO..If you want to live in that type of neighborhood, you should do it.
I'll let you know how it goes, should I goto the scene of the crime...and in NY at that time, Incest was a crime. I'll talk to T about it
