Vic­tim of break-in hopes peo­ple show a lit­tle more love

The Southern Gazette - - EDITORIAL - Tarra Ben­nett

Dear ed­i­tor, I have en­joyed my cabin in L’Anse au Paul for seven years. Not one prob­lem. Last year I had planned to build a deck on my cabin. I ran out of time so I stored the ma­te­rial I pur­chased at Rona’s at the back of my cabin for eight months. Not one piece of ma­te­rial dis­ap­peared. My brother would joke with me and say, “I bet we could leave $50 on your step and not one per­son would touch it.”

I want to say thank you to all of you who have passed by and re­spected my pri­vacy for all of those 2555 days. With the news of the cur­rent un­law­ful en­try last week, please do not lose faith. One un­law­ful en­try in 2,555 days is a pretty good av­er­age.

How­ever, I feel so sorry for the per­son who did en­ter un­law­fully. I feel sorry for their life’s con­di­tions that would cause them to feel com­pelled to steal my per­sonal be­long­ings.

May they be blessed with ev­ery­thing they need to stop such be­hav­ior from ev­ery hap­pen­ing again?

May there be no cause for any of us in­clud­ing them to feel vi­o­lated by such be­hav­ior ever again.

God Bless them and all of us who feel a lack in our lives.

If ev­ery­one read­ing this mes­sage would send love to all those they know of that feel they are in need, maybe just maybe with our bless­ings we all will find our way with­out feel­ing the need to vi­o­late others and our­selves through any and all un­law­ful acts. Items miss­ing that I know of: snow­board with case given to me by my son, roller blades, new golf clubs, ta­ble and chairs, white room di­vider and a small cook­ing stove.
