There are a lot of veterans other than WOR even though the streets can often seem like a battle sometimes knowing who you can trust all of the safe alleys, streets and the best times to travel them. The mind never slows or shuts off with every step there is caution and uncertainty a chance the next step will be the one where someone will either befriend you or try to cause you harm. I had learned looks would not always save someone that charm only goes so far and just being polite as you pass people leaves most people thinking there is an ulterior motive behind the smile. I found that if you hold your head up and appear to be just another someone walking by you become invisible chances are no one will remember you by the end of the day. I had the looks, smarts, attitude and all that came from it was people twice and three times my age drugging me getting me drunk to have sex with me it would not have been so bad guys were doing it also that is were caution came in to play.
