A message from the victim of a burglary asking for a memory card with precious photos left people in tears after being shared online
There is no way to describe the feeling of knowing that a stranger was in your home and searched your possessions to make their choice.
Even if you are lucky enough to have insurance to cover the monetary value of the things you take, no amount of money can replace the sentimental sentiment we associate with them.
One burglar victim brought people to tears by summarizing the feeling in a powerful but heartbreaking message posted on a pole in front of their home to address the perpetrator.
A picture posted on Quora in response to the question, “What’s the saddest picture you’ve seen on the internet today?” Shared, shows the victim’s appeal only for the return of a memory card in a camera as it contained valuable photos that would mean nothing to others.
It reads: “To the man who was in my house and robbed me. Keep the money and my DSLR and whatever else you took.
“But if you have the memory card from the camera, please have photos from my dog’s last day. I cannot replace these photos.
“Please throw it on the porch or put it in the mailbox. Or email it to [an address in Toronto, Canada].
“Please, she died a few days ago, I can’t lose these photos either.”
People were dejected by the news when one said, “I really hope the victim got the photos back. I also hope that the man or women who robbed the house have their little toe on a heavy one every day Chair legs dull as long as they live. “
A second wrote, “Dude, just give them the memory card back. Leave it in the mailbox or something.”
And many shared their own similar experiences, as another explained, “Somebody stole my sister’s phone while we were out picking flowers for our mother’s funeral. Her phone had some irreplaceable videos and pictures of our mother, so it was it’s a bigger loss than I can say. “
