YOUR TURN: Sandra Henderson's reason for moving

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Sandra Henderson. Henderson's letter about the Memphis area crime situation is appropriate for this week in the wake the FBI's release of the 2006 crime stats. Those stats show the Memphis region having more violent crime per capita than any other. Henderson was so frustrated by crime here that she moved.

In her words:

"I grew up in Memphis and we were never afraid in our home.  But after having my house broken into twice and a gun pointed at me while I sat in my car in my driveway one afternoon, I was always afraid. When I dialed 911, it was over an hour before an officer responded.  I do not think the citizens of Memphis should have to live like this.  My solution was to move to Washington state, but it was not easy and I had to leave a lot of friends behind."

That's Sandra Henderson's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
