New Submission : Harassed in Findlay Creek

I am 13 years old but I look older than I am. Today I was walking home with my friend who is 14. While we were walking through Dragonfly Park in Findlay Creek, Ottawa, a bunch of male teenagers in a car pulled up near us and asked for our Snapchat in a threatening tone. I yelled “no!” Then they started laughing and continued to watch us as we walked away. One of the worst parts is that since we were in a park there were plenty of parents with children who were near by, but didn’t do anything to help or stand up for us. It kills me that catcalling is a normal occurrence because in that moment I felt super violated and unsafe even if there were other people around because it felt like no one would help me or my friend if things progressed into something more than harassment.
