Mugged in Chicago

One of my colleagues was recently mugged in Chicago and is blogging her experience back to normalcy.

Writing about my experience is, admittedly, an exercise for the internal. It may not be bringing those memories to the surface, but it is providing an outlet for my frustration, fear, anger, hope, and thankfulness. This afternoon a friend of mine told me he’d called his 24-year-old sister… to read my blog. She called him back and said she would never, ever leave a bar alone again.

    Wow. She is certainly brave and courageous to chronicle her experience.

    From one who has also been mugged (albeit in one of the most unlikely of places) please send her my thanks for sharing her experience. I hope that we someday won’t have to walk in groups, but until then, here’s hoping we can always find a safe way home.

    It really makes me wonder what’s wrong with people who attack others like this.
