|Stay Alert, Don't Get Hurt|
|由小一七歲開始, 我就已經自己一個搭巴士返學.. 我記得一定要喺早上6:30前上巴士, 如果唔係就實塞車遲大到.. 所以當時係天摸黑, 由屋企到車站要行幾百公尺, 由車站到學校又再行幾百公尺.. 我冇其他人咁好命有專車接送, 整個學生生涯都係要自己搭車, 從來都未覺得怕或唔安全..|
嗰陣係超過廿年前嘅時候, 當然我哋都明白今時今日唔會再有呢隻歌仔唱啦.. 小朋友都係(或者我應該話「一定」)要有人接送返學放學, 但係就算咁都未必係百分之百安全.. 我哋每隔幾日就可以聽到驚人新聞, 打劫/拐带/謀殺樣樣齊.. 莫講小朋友, 就算我哋成年人行過暗巷, 夜晩揸車, 不論單獨或成群, 都會覺得唔安全.. 更離譜嘅係光天白日眾目癸癸之下, 罪案事件都照樣發生.. 就連為社會伸張正義, 都可能落得俾人拋落樓, 俾人炸到粉身碎骨, 俾人埋入石屎桶内等等嘅下場.. 極度恐怖!! 我哋嘅安全受到威脅, 呢個社會究竟發生咗咩事?? 點解我哋並未在執法之下得到應有嘅保護??
|since i was in standard one at age 7, i already took public bus to school all by myself.. i still remember i had to board the bus before 6:30am to avoid traffic congestion.. so it was all dark and i had to walk hundreds of metres from home to the bus stand, and then from the bus stand to school.. nope, i have never had the luxury to be chauffeured right to the gate of school for my entire schooling life, yet i did not ever feel scared or unsafe back then at all..|
that was more than two decades ago, of course we understand this could never happen nowadays.. children are (or shall i say, must be) all chauffeured and escorted to school, even that does not necessarily mean total safety.. we have seen shocking news on kidnappings, robberies and murders almost every several days, leave aside children, even we adults do not feel safe walking down dark alleys, driving at night, be it alone or in group.. worst still, crimes choose no time but happen under daylight and the witness of public.. even if one tries to do good for justice, one could end up thrown down from building, bombed into ashes or chucked into cement barrel.. extremely scary!! our safety is threatened, what has happened to our society?? why are we not reasonably protected under enforcement??
