I was in disbelief watching the news last month about a fatal home invasion robbery in my neighborhood. The victim had surveillance cameras outside his house and after I watched how he and his wife were forced into their house at gunpoint, I was very alarmed and terrified. I see myself vulnerable too because whenever I walk to my house leading up to my front door, I don't look around and do a quick scan of my sides or back. I just walk to my door. In the video, you can see one suspect walking back and forth in front of their targeted house a couple of times, clearly casing the place. Once the gunman forced the couple inside their house, the victim tried to run upstairs and was shot by one of the suspects. Another unbelievable thing that was shown in the video was a pedestrian lurking outside was noticed by the robbers from inside the house and one of them went out, walked the guy in at gunpoint and tied him up. From this tragedy, I learned to change my ways about certain things. I'm more diligent about my surrounding as I walk to my door. I make sure I'm not distracted and not talking on my phone when I'm opening my door. The victim was talking on his phone while walking up to his front door. I've talked to my kids, friends and family about this awareness when walking in the streets, going to their cars whether in the streets or garage, and walking to their house or other people's house. I hope to encourage everyone to practice the same safety precautions and if you have any more to add, please comment about it.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that?
