kidnappings increase on the border

Recent news about the increase in kidnappings in Southern Texas and Northern Mexico has me concerned. I drive through there a few times a year to visit my Grandmother (and mother). But my mother goes that way all the time.

Granted, we have almost no money. I can’t imagine anyone targetting someone from my immediate family for money. However, there have been unintentional victims.

I get worried that it’s going to become too dangerous for me, in the not so far future.
