An agonizing scream pierces the sweet silence of the night, jolting me awake from my deep sleep. Rattled and shaken, I stumble to my window and peek cautiously through the corner of my blinds to scan for the source of that horrific sound. Silence hushes the darkened landscape. My gaze sharpens as I try to make out familiar shadowed shapes in my yard when I notice that my gate is slightly ajar.
My mouth dries as my heart thuds wildly in my chest…. it’s supposed to be locked! Why is it open? Darting my eyes around my yard I didn’t notice anything unusual, the forested area on the other side of my gated yard seemed eerily quiet too.
Worried about our safety, I raced past my daughter’s room and checked on her before creeping downstairs to make sure my doors were still locked. Relieved, but still shaken, I wandered back up to bed. Oh, I wish I could sleep easier! I was tossing and turning all night though because I was STILL thinking about my gate being open, leaving us vulnerable. After all, we don’t live in the best area of town. I wish I knew what happened. I hope whomever or whatever made that sound is okay…
Far too often we lay awake at night wishing that we had taken better precautions in keeping our families and ourselves safe. By the time we recognize that this is a problem, it’s usually too late. We’re left victimized and vulnerable to thieves and harm simply because we didn’t secure our homes or property properly.
