My son and his friend Melissa got robbed in Mexico City today. Someone pulled a knife. He lost his phone and his camera but that's it. He's OK. It was crazy to get an email from him at the US Embassy in Mexico City telling me all this. He was lucky not to lose his other ID so he was able to get a new passport. Most importantly he didn't get hurt physically, but did say it was traumatic. How could it not be? He head's back to NYC tomorrow.
He was there on vacation and taking photos of art. He runs the 16 miles website. I'm so glad he is OK!! Love you Andrew!
I don't know why, but this old Dylan lyric comes to mind:
Sometimes I think this whole world
Is one big prison yard.
Some of us are prisoners.
The rest of us are guards.
