I USE to know lots of people that never locked their door.  Never!  Day, night, home, not home, didn't matter.  But, that trust we once had has been shattered by a crime that didn't even exist when I was young.  Home Invasions.  They happen way too often and this time, it was keys taken to their automobile.  Please, please, use this as a reminder to lock your doors, always.  It will help to keep you and your family safe.
