Bur­glar­ies can be very dis­tress­ing

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - PETE WIL­LIAMS York Av­enue, Hayes MISS T CAMP­BELL Fairdale Gar­dens Hayes

And lastly – any ‘Amer­i­can’ words that the BBC in­cessently rams down our throat to change our lan­guage (eg look how quickly they im­pli­mented ‘Key’ as a re­place­ment for ‘im­por­tant);

Peace at last Babara – I won’t even get started on the way Eng­land has been al­lowed to change for the worse over the course of my 69 years on this planet. BE­ING bur­gled can be very dis­tress­ing and un­set­tling as a good friend found out, but even worse is the fact they knew the cul­prits.

The items did not have large mon­e­tary value, but the jew­ellery, mem­ory boxes and tributes to lost loved ones were sen­ti­men­tal and of no use to any­one else.

They were a vi­tal tool in help­ing them ex­press feel­ings and feel close af­ter loss, help­ing them keep strong and with­out these items they can feel lost.

It’s not like a TV or stereo or other larger items and it needs to be taken more se­ri­ously as it leaves a long last­ing im­pact and makes peo­ple feel vul­ner­a­ble.

Also I would through your page like to wish Alexan­dra Endleswick of Northolt a be­lated Happy Birth­day.

Alexan­dra has worked in soup kitchens for the home­less in South Bank and helped to coun­sel peo­ple with ad­dic­tions and other is­sues

dur­ing her Psy­chol­ogy course.
