I was with my mom walking away from Bourbon Street with my brother and sister. A man on a bike was looking at me and then he licked his lips and nodded. Afterward I told my mom what happened and from that day on I don’t like being in New Orleans. I just feel it’s […]

I was walking back to my house after just strolling around the neighborhood. I walked past my neighbor’s house (right across the street a few houses down), and there’s a teenage boy sitting in his driveway. I’m 17, so I assumed I knew him, and waved.
