Who would steal from a 7-year-old?

Published 10:34am Thursday, May 30, 2013

Our family decided to have a garage sale this past holiday weekend. We were very proud and happy when our oldest child, Gabe, wanted to sell some of his toys to earn some money to possibly buy a new video game. Here he was 7 and already learning to part with some toys to obtain something else. It’s too bad he had to learn a different lesson also, that there are mean and cruel people out there. Someone stole his Nintendo DS and video games during the sale. So this goes out to that thief. I hope you are feeling proud stealing from a 7-year-old, thanks a lot. I hope you … Well, I had better end it there.
