Evidence of Gunfire
Today, as I was getting out of my nursing assault vehicle to see a patient, I noticed a gleam on the blacktop. I bent over and picked up a beat up .40 caliber shell casing. Then I noticed another and another. These casings had been in the street for a while, and obviously had been run over by automobiles a few times.
It made me wonder........was that .40 caliber weapon fired to settle a score, to protect a life, or to celebrate the new year? In that neighborhood, one possibility is as likely as the other.
I picked them up and went to see my patient.
