Are we safe?

Dear Madam,
News of rape cases brings shiver down our spine. Everywhere we go, we have to be cautious and alert. Our mind is always anxious about meeting with ill-intended intruders. Our parents call us every minute and hour to check on us, making sure that we are safe. Their mind is not at ease when we are out, but we cannot help, especially when some of us are the only bread earners of the family and we have to go and work. Are we supposed to live in fear all this while? Are we even safe? Isn’t it high time to bring a change?
