A Letter to My Burglars

Dear 3 Young Men that I discovered carrying my stuff out of my house on May 15, 2012 when I came home from work:

 

Did you know that I work 3 jobs to have what little I have?

 

Did you know that one of my jobs is working with At-Risk Teens at a school?

 

Did you know that my family life growing up was less than ideal, but I went to college and worked my ass off to have a better life?

 

Did you happen to notice my kids’ and grandkids’ photos and drawings on the refrigerator door?  They are what I live and work for.

 

Did you know that I’m sorry you have a crappy life and that I’m angry as hell at the adults in your life that have failed you?

 

Did you know that even now I still have faith that God can change you and give you a better life too?  You just gotta want it more than my laptop.

 

 

Allie
