You Can't Run

Guest written by our friend Gladys Fuentes

As my husband and I have lived in various suburban areas, I have come to realize that no place is free from danger. No matter the demographic or location, bad people live everywhere. You can’t live behind some magic gate or wall that will provide an impermeable fortress as much as we would all love to believe that. If someone really wants to enter a home, he or she will find a way to do so. The number of break-ins is on the rise. People are living in desperate situations during desperate times. Each week, more and more people are losing their jobs, facing mounting bills, and money never seems to spread far enough. With such stress, some people feel like they have no other option than to make bad choices that they feel will help them to get out of their tough times. When it gets right down to it, all you can do is feel sorry the desperate situations these people are dealing with. This certainly does not advocate a life of crime, but when the motivation is feeding a family, your heart becomes a little less hard. To make my own family feel safe in such a day and time, I researched ADT Security Equpment. My hope is that in having good home security, my own family will feel protected in a world where decent people fall victim to bad choices of those not so fortunate.
