Letter from a D.C. soccer game.
For the past few years, I’ve had a friend from overseas who lives and works in the DC/NOVA area. I’ve had to educate him on the realities of life around here, especially given the targets that internationals can be. He appears to get it some days, and then it’s like he never heard a word — or rather, he’s heard some encouraging happy talk from others.
A few days ago, he was telling me about this restaurant venture. They really want to be in DC, “because it’s not like it’s once was… you know, it’s really being gentrified.” They likely can’t afford to rent a place in Georgetown — which from your videos you know isn’t exactly Shangri-La, but you can make a go of it there. He then listed some other emerging [sic] areas, including 14th St. going up by Shaw etc. Yep, they’ve got shiny new 9-5 p.m. trendy shops instead of wall-to-wall hookers, but even the most compromised of crime stats hardly show a return to Mayberry.
He met me over at RFK Stadium tonight for a soccer game — I drove, he took the Metro. He mentioned that “the Metro must go through a lot of rough neighborhoods”, as he saw what he cast as some youths going from car to car, looking for the most empty cars and harassing passengers. He said a young woman came and sat next to him when they got on there (“they were four and we were two”). He’s not a small guy, and that may have helped them think twice. But how many crime reports really carry with them even more mayhem connected with them?
Anyway, this gave me an opening to have a deeper conversation about what he needed to consider in the restaurant venture and other matters. Again, I’m grateful that you started and then persisted in passing along the truth. It’s like sharing the Gospel; some people may get it and some may not, but at least sharing the truth gives them the chance to hear the truth and make a decision based on what they have received.
