Not A Good Place To Retire

My Miami story for today has to do with a retired doctor who lived in The Village Of Pinecrest, my neighborhood.  Pinecrest was supposedly one of the "better neighborhoods."  A high school kid a few years back decided to skip school one day to burglarize houses.  He encountered this gentle saver of lives and shot him dead.  All to steal his car.  This is a classic Miami story.  In the end, like so many others, it was the doctor who made the miscalculation.   He believed that Miami was a safe place to retire.  Read about it in:  MIAMI: A SURVIVOR'S TALE, by The Black Mountain Press.  The book can be pre-ordered at:   "catalog"
