(Ann Arbor, Michigan)
Ending our discussion too quickly during a period of class, my group members of three instead switched the flow of conversation to their background and environment where they grew up. They shared with me their experience of growing up in some of the most dangerous and gun infested cities in US.
They put how the teachers usually look tense when there’s a gang riot which broke out near the school. And how their school days would be cancelled because someone spread a rumour that gun fights will happened near the school, which turns out to be true but it was in the afternoon after the presumed non-existent school time. I wonder how it is to have a childhood like that.
Perhaps, banning guns will be good for this nation future, after all.
