    But, it is more low key most of the time.  We put up some sort of mind filter to cope with it most of the time.  Then, when something happens, a noise, a feeling, a circumstance, hyper-vigilance over takes.  Then there are the habits that we carry out without giving it a second thought.  Never park next to a van.  Walk with your keys and whistle or pepper spray in hand.  Never be the last woman to leave a party, don't just open the door, etc.
    It helps that I no longer live in the city but, I have yard dogs.  If I didn't have a child, I would have a gun.
