Hi,there!Well,I would like to say something about this phenomenon. In college,it is common that many friends have been stolen and even for many times.Their money or valuables have been stolen and even not for once. So what do you think?Would you like to share your experiences with us?

Yes, when I was a child I grew up in Los Angeles, California. The neighborhood I grew up in was a very bad one with lots of criminal activity. Our house got broken into about 20 times and every time they stole something. The worst thing was my grandmother's jewelry box which had her locket that was given to her by her mother back in 1900 and some of her old jewelry. My mother's jewelry box was taken too which had her and my father's wedding rings in it, a diamond watch, and some other very sentimental items. They ransacked our house every time, beat our dog with a belt and my hairbrush, and tore up our family Bible. The Bible was old, from the 1800's and had our family's births, deaths, marriages, etc. written inside. I guess they were looking for money in there. Also, my mother had her purse snatche on several ocassions, a few of the times the teenagers beat her up too to get her purse. The sad thing is that my mom was on welfare and we never had any extra money or anything so there really was nothing to steal. Thanks to God we go to move out of there after 12 years and I have never had that happen to me again. Except one time my husband had his car stereo stolen from his car while it was locked and parked in our driveway. The thief busted out his window and took the radio. The radio was only 2 days old.

when I was in college my bag was stolen containing my money for tuition fee, RL perfume, cellphone and my card containing all my grades for the 1st term. I asked my classmate to look after my bag because I'll be getting something from the dean's office. When I came back my bag was gone. I cried a lot andcurse that school. I didn't see my bag anymore. I think the moral lesson was, dont leave your thing unattended and

My car was broken into once. Nothing was taken only a bible which was under the passenger;s seat was taken but thrown afterward. I still felt shaken afterwards. © ronaldinu 2008
