Last week I was reading about the man who decided to kill two people at a supermarket in Louisville, KY called Krogers. I think Kroger’s primarily a southern chain for I haven’t seen any in the north nor past Texas.
But it feels different when you read about an area or location where a murder took place and you have visited it in the past.
As I said in the beginning post of this blog. I have lived, visited, and traveled through every state in the union.
Some places I was there longer than others but I have learned that you can get a pretty good idea or feel of an area simply from visiting the local businesses. If they’re friendly and courteous to all their customers then you know you’re in a upward mobility area. If not. Then if you are a social conscious person you might want to reconsider moving there.
Forget the glamor of the buildings, the shiny cars zooming by, the manicured lawns, the reasonable prices of rent or mortgage and watch the people. The people are who will determine your likeability of the place and feel for the vibes they give off. It may even save your life. Every thing isn’t going to be obvious. That’s why it’s important to get a feel for an area.
Businesses do it all the time. They send out agent to canvass the area. To get a feel for the area before deciding to open a store there. So, this is more important than you may think.
No, I’m not saying these people couldn’t have been there at Krogers. They had every right to shop and feel safe.
But what I’m saying is that the store policies and employees are rude toward certain customers. And this kind of attitude fosters an unsafe environment.
Keep your eyes peeled.
