Less than two weeks ago I got frustrated when, after a crime was committed in Bradford, someone commented on Facebook, "Typical Bradford."
According to Merriam‑Webster typical is: normal for a person, thing, or group : average or usual.
I don't know about you but, in my circle of friends, stabbings are neither normal, average nor usual. And I have a pretty big group of friends. So, to me and my friends and acquaintances, this was anything but "typical Bradford" and it led to this Facebook rant (and the update I added yesterday):
We all know Bradford still has problems, but they are being addressed. Change doesn't happen overnight. If you can't see everything good that's happening in Bradford right now, you need to open your eyes. It's that simple.
