Last night one of my students came upon a mugging. Thankfully, there was a group of people between him and the girls who were getting mugged (by two guys at gunpoint/knifepoint). He had stayed late at school for a basketball game. He left here at 10:00 and didn't get home until after midnight. He says that the muggers had demanded the girls' purses, one handed it over, the other said no, and the mugger with the pistol put it right up against her forehead, so she handed it over. One of the girls was also deprived of her expensive shoes. I know that this student is almost an adult, but I still am so outraged that someone would cause so much fear anywhere near him. He is a great guy with a big heart and he deserves a much better world than this one.
