The Editor,

I want to very heartfelt thank the neighbours near Schoolhouse and Brunette when I had to call for help. 

A custom red Jeep drove up, asked us to buy drugs. We said “no” and “get out of the neighbourhood.” Then they jumped out and tried to beat up my boyfriend, and pulled a knife! 

A young family stopped and called the police and three other men ran out to help. The police came. 

So thank you so much to everyone who came out to help! It means so much to me.

Love you!
