6th & Copper Safety Concerns

I'm not sure how many of you live and walk around the downtown area, but lately I've had issues with the intersection of 6th and Copper by the main library and the Immaculate Conception church.  I'm not one to complain about these things and I've been living downtown for 10 years now and have always felt safe walking around, but this area has become extra sketchy in the last few months.

We moved into an apartment, San Miguel Del Bosque, to be exact which was not the most ideal living situation to be in considering there was 6 of us living in a 3 bedroom apartment.

My parents met in Japan. My dad was stationed there and my mom was there teaching on the base. They got married in Tokyo. I would love to take a trip to Japan someday. My cousin actually lives in Okinawa now. She's teaching over there too.

Never had the experience of being stationed overseas. My dad was a Lt. Col in the Air Force. Lived in Mississippi, Illinois, Florida and then here. He retired here. Looking at it now, we didn't have to move around that much. How about yourself? I Love Calexico, by the way.
