Locking Doors - A Simple Twist of the Knob.
Rural America Typically does not lock their doors
I was recently reminded of my upbringing.. I always would roll my eyes every time my dad would say - "you forgot to lock the door - what would you be doing right now if it wasn't me?" Truthfully besides rolling my eyes.. If it was a real stranger I would probably be scared enough to have pee'd my grown up pants. Yep, it would freak me out! Scream and then scrambling to find a way out of the situation.
The weekly police news recently had me thinking about my own personal safety in my rural home at night and during the day. WOW that would not be fun to be experiencing and transitioning from Dreamland to reality, when someone enters your home when you are at your most unaware state. How fast can one actually transition from Dreamland to your in danger, anyway?
So Just a reminder. Remember to keep you and your loved ones safe during the night by a simple twist of the knob. Locking your doors only helps you to stay safe.
