Is There Still Pride In New Bedford? [POLL]
Another day, another shooting in New Bedford it seems like this has been a tough 2014 so far for the city.
From stories about shootings, to violence in New bedford schools,its easy to understand if New Bedford pride is slowly dissapearing from the minds of people who live here.
I’ve noticed thoughts like “I can’t wait to get out of here”, or “New Bedford is getting worse an worse” On the other side of the debate, some people say that its unavoidable no matter where you go. .
For people that have lived here all thier lives it must be such a dissapointment to see a city that they know and love to be getting this kind of stigma being placed upon it.
While I wasn’t around in the 1960s , I do recall hearing stories about curfews and violence in those days as well. Maybe its always been around us, but now it just stands out more.
New Bedford is a proud city, and I’m sure lots of people have hope, but how long can things go on this way before the pride is completely gone.
