The mood at Cuttin Up Barbershop was different Tuesday for Derrick Taylor.
He usually talks about sports while getting his haircut, but on Tuesday the conversation felt more raw and meaningful.
“What happened there in Boston – that was terrible. Those people were out there enjoying themselves,” said Taylor. “Kids dying and getting hurt and injured. Man, it's ridiculous. So what should would do?” wondered Taylor.
It’s a question that leaves him feeling vulnerable.
“I'm living in fear just like everybody else is right now. I'm pretty sure everyone in the United States is like ‘wow, where's it going to be next time,'” said Taylor.
Across town, the women at Moments Hair Salon shared a similar feeling.
“It makes you kinda feel like you can't go anywhere. You can't go to a movie or you might get shot; or you can't go run a race with a bunch of people – no place is safe,” said stylist Susan Kennedy.
