The Robbery

Who: My dad

Where: Over the phone.

When: January 2016.

What: The house where my uncle and our two family dogs were living at was robbed some time after I picked up one of the dogs. When my dad told me the house was robbed, I felt traumatized. I couldn't help but imagine that I could have been there when it happened. But my dad surprised me with his positivity.

'IT'S JUST LIKE A HURRICANE, OR EARTHQUAKE. IT HAPPENS, IT PASSES, AND YOU JUST HAVE TO CLEAN UP. THAT'S ALL.'
