B&E targets refuse to be victims
Last weekend, my daughter and I were prey to a break-and-enter.
I would like to thank the individual who thought that this was an opportunity to participate in a five-finger discount in our home.
You may have found pleasure in stealing a number of items from our home, using my credit cards, and enjoying the spoils of your ill-gotten gains. However, what you failed to realize we are lucky enough to have friends and neighbours – people we have reached out to and made aware of your actions.
Our neighbors have learned from our experience. They have become aware of locking the garage door and watching out for one another.
You may have stolen items that you think are of value, but material objects have no real value. You left us we a greater sense of community, with stronger communication between friends and neighbours. I hope you enjoy our “gifts to you” as they are material.
We will enjoy our heightened sense of awareness and our stronger community.
We are not victims.
