What's going on with the world today?


I would like to know what has happened to our world today. We have our house up for sale, since we have moved into another one not far away. When we went to take care of the lawn today, we noticed that a piece of driftwood that we had in our front yard is gone.

This piece of wood has many memories and has been in the family for a long time and will be greatly missed. What would possess someone to take an old piece of wood out of someone's yard without permission?

I have always been very proud of the Midwest and how people here respect and protect their friends and neighbors, but this makes me wonder if we are becoming just like the east coast and west coast where people think they are entitled to anything they want and crime is rampant.

We do not think this is in any way similar to the break in at Westwood School that happened not too long ago. That was a case of lack of parental guidance. The parents of these young teenagers apparently have not taught their children right from wrong and should be held responsible for the actions of their children.

It seems that some parents today do not teach their children to respect, honor, and obey the laws of society. This does not mean that we think teenagers were involved in the theft of our yard decoration. It seems more likely that it would have been an adult involved in this theft of personal property.

Anyway, no matter who was responsible, it is a shame that our great nation has become so callous and untrustworthy that a simple piece of yard decoration would tempt someone to commit a crime.
