Big City Life
Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy
When we moved to Miami, we really felt like we needed a class called Home Security 101. We never lived in a big city before, and it was difficult to know if we were doing all the right things. In our old town, everyone knew everyone else, so we didn’t worry too much about safety. Every once in a while there would be a problem in town, but it was usually an isolated incident. We knew that the realtor who helped us buy our house said our neighborhood was one of the safest in South Florida, but that doesn’t mean that bad things don’t happen. My husband was completely paranoid that something would go wrong, so we decided that we would reach out to friends for some advice about life in Miami. We were lucky enough to have a few good friends that my husband works with. We were really touched by the way our friends were so willing to help and give us tips about how we could make our home safer and a less likely target. We never thought that people would be so helpful in such a big city.
