I live in Chelsea and grew up in the revere projects one city away I hate this place my boyfriend has lived in Chelsea his whole life and a few summers ago his old friend from high school who lived across the street from him was sitting on his porch with his brother and right in front of him ms-13 came up and shot his brother in the head and then ran they eventually caught both of them and when asked why they killed him they said mistaken identity needless to say his family moved the only reason I'm still here is because I can't find a cheaper apartment
