Top 100 Most Dangerous Cities in America

 [ A belated happy new year to friends and subscribers, and Twitter followers! I had a peaceful and wonderful Christmas holiday season and I hope you did too! ] 

Although I did my own personal “final relocation for sanity, spirituality and safety’s sake” into the untamed wilds many years ago, for many American city dwellers who are raising kids [ or raising their kids’ kids ], 2013 might present the last opportunity to get out of the big city before life in America takes yet another tick downward on the socio-economic and personal safety scale.

If you have been praying on this issue, or just doing alot of deep thought, with calculator in hand, here’s a list that might help you make up your mind. You might not yet be sure where you are going, but you can at least know where NOT to go if you choose to relocate. More posts on living in the preparedness mode to come, and in the meantime, be sure to check out one of my other blogs on preparedness, Ready For Anything Store, as there are many good articles there as well. Be safe!
