The other night, I came home to see that all my CHRISTMAS LIGHTS HAD BEEN STOLEN. This was the first time I'd ever had lights and I was truly so excited. It took all of 2 days for someone to walk onto my property and take them from me, robbing me of more than just the physical items. What I got from someone's callous criminal behavior was standing in the freezing cold in the middle of the night, reporting it to a police officer.
I can't afford new lights......... This whole situation engrains a real sense of worry that leaves me feeling very uncomfortable and unsafe, especially considering this is my first Christmas here since my move. Instead of feeling joy about something I'd had for the very first time, there is a sadness and fear of my own belongings on my own property.
