Okay Elijahfan I'm going to give you some real advice. The advice these guys have been giving you is for pansies. I think your mother is a bitch. You can't let her walk all over you because if you let people walk all over you now than they'll walk all over you for the rest of your life. It's time you took action. I think instead of being afraid of the criminals in the area try making a few friends among a local gang. I know it sounds crazy but no one can teach you how to protect yourself from a criminal better than another criminal. Besides gangs are better than family, they've always got your back if anyone messes with you. And once you've made some connections and learned to defend yourself than you can buy a train ticket, run away, and never look back.
Religion is Myth-information.
All religions contain some truth but no religion contains all truth.

but first let me eat of the fruit of knowledge."
