Topic: My house got robbed

The title explains everything. I got home from school to find the back door glass busted and a few valueables stolen. Fortunatly, nome of my magic tricks got stolen, but I still feel bad since my mom's wedding rings got stolen, a XBOX borrowed from a friend got stolen, and a lot of other valueables got stolen. Any kind words would be accepted at this bad time for my family.

Cody,

Sorry to hear about your loss. I went through something similar years back. Its one of the reasons I NEVER buy anything "hot" no matter how good of a deal it is. In fact I make a stink to whoever offers me anything "hot" because I am reminded of what the person went through that had it stolen.

The only kind words I can think to offer is something that makes sense to me. Nobody was home right? Nobody got hurt right? The rest is crap and doesn't matter. Its only material things. You'd give it all up and much more to help any of your loved ones if they got hurt in the deal and they didn't so...buck up my friend. Don't let some peices of plastic and inanimate objects rule you.

Best,

Tim

Cody,

I'm saddened to hear that your home was robbed. We love to think of Kentucky as safe but there are bottom-feeders over too much of the country. At least in Kentucky robbery is against the law. In parts of Alabama (specifically Selma) the police would not even make a report of robbery.

It is good that nobody was home and physically injured. The best parts were safe.

Take care.

Been there myself. It wasn't the video camera that upset me. It was my moms antique locket which belonged to her grand mother.

Still chides me to this day.

Getting burglarized is never a pleasant thing. It's a violation and you've got every right to be ****ed, hurt, scared, angry whatever.

Thanks for the kind words and advice, even though it took quite a while for me to see it since I think they also put a virus in our computer. And I agree with your advice Timothy Drake. The stolen stuff doesn't matter. All that matters is that my family was safe. Except that my mom is really torn over losing her wedding & engagement rings due to how much they meant to her.
