  75. I almost got kidnapped one day when I was waiting for the bus in D.C. by a man in an orange pick-up truck. He kept telling me to get in the car, and when I refused he drove away and he came back and asked again. I was scared I couldn't even move.
  76. Some strange man played with my hair on the Subway in NYC at 4 a.m. on the way to our friends house. Once again, too scared to move.
