5 minutes of fear

This past summer, I had to walk 5 minutes to a St Louis metro link station and back to be able to get to work and back home. Weekly, I was honked at, whistled at, and given the hand telephone-sign to “call me.” Every day, I walked this 5 minutes back and forth from work in fear. I often talked on my cell phone thinking that it would be a deterrent from this harassment—it wasn’t.
