Theft ruins kids’ vision of this area

But, what goes around, comes around

This is to the person(s) who took the following things from my visiting brother’s car, parked in my driveway on Thursday evening: a black GPS (borrowed from another brother); a brand new tent with screen that sleeps four, in a burgundy case with two burgundy sleeping bags; the money in a change dish, mostly coins, you can keep!

It is pretty sad when my brother, who brings his children out to visit the place he went to school, the places he has memories of,  and then someone decides to go into his car and take these things. What a great impression to his children, ages 15 and 11, to take back to Saskatoon with them.

I am disheartened to show off my town. They arrived on Wednesday evening. Thursday, we went to Mission and saw Chehalis, all in the rain. I am embarrassed for the stupidity of those who took these things. I feel disappointed that some stupid act would make my niece and nephew feel worried about someone breaking in while they sleep. They are worried that someone might be watching them. All this in the beginning of their visit.

Parents, if you see these things, which might have been “found”, please call the paper and/or have your child return them, no questions asked.

If the person who took these things does not feel obligated to return them, well, remember, “WHAT GOES AROUND – COMES AROUND!”

Thanks a lot.
