More Violence Strikes Mexico at Spring Break Time

Spring break has started for many people.  A couple weeks ago I advised a friend of mine not to take his family to Mexico for SB because of violence in that country (see  Spring Break Gamble).  The violence has only gotten worse.  Shootings and beheadings in Acapulco. And 2 Americans killed in Cuidad Juarez. Over the weekend, the State Dept. issued a travel warning to Mexico.  Ironically, my friend took his family to a place called Robbers Cave State Park here in Oklahoma.  Robbers Cave used to be a hideout for Jesse James.  I asked my friend  “Why not Mexico?”   He texted me back, “Couldn’t get any peace about it (Mexico).”  Despite the name and notoriety, Robbers Cave was a much safer spring break choice for his family than Mexico.
