I hate these shows that show people how vulnerable their house/personal belongs are. Espeically the ones that leave the person with this expensive security system and locks on all their doors.

There is value in not over reacting, in not over reacting, in not living in fear. Can people really enjoy their vacations if they're always worried about getting ripped off? Bars over the windows just remind me about how bad the world can be, and truth be told, it's not really that bad.

We can never be perfectly safe, but that doesn't mean that we have to be afraid.

Oh, yes.

I would never leave my house with the door unlocked. But I felt horribly guilty this July when my parents visited and were convinced I would be at least robbed blind if not murdered in my bed because we leave the windows open when it's ninety degrees out. I probably should feel unsafe every day of my life. I just usually can't be bothered.

My mother's house has never been locked in the 40 years she's lived there. I will say that there are some things to be said for (reasonably) small towns… not that you could pay me to live there.

It pretty much formed me so that my housemates aren't happy about how locked I don't keep the house…

Me, I take them as a sign that it's noth worth doing most 'security type things' too much. One doesn't need to tempt the fates, but really, you can't stop the determined.
