Last month, at Terry Road, my brother’s longboard was stolen.

Two years ago, my iPod was stolen. Last year, my brother’s bike was stolen and his iPod touch was stolen right out of his backpack. One year ago, our scooters got stolen right from the top of our driveway under our carport.

Why steal? What’s the point? I know there are gonna be people with less and people with more. If you take something that’s not yours, you didn’t work for it, it’s not yours.

My brother was devastated when he went to the yard to find his board was not there. Someone went through the gate and went to the side of the house. There were six longboards there. The person took three – my brother’s, my neighbour’s and my brother’s good friend.

Longboarding is something my brother does every day. It’s amazing to watch them go down the hill and do tricks and slides. My brother and his friends are sponsored by WHR (West Hem Roll) and CR Boardworks. They make videos and stuff to advertise the company, but how are they supposed to go riding if they don’t have a board?

My brother had saved up for a long time for that board, and now he has to buy a whole new one.

Why take something that’s not rightfully yours? Stealing and cheating – it doesn’t help you, it just makes it worst. Even if if you are really poor, it’s still not right to steal.

Someone should be able to leave their stuff inside a gate at the side of their house without it going missing. It’s more than just stealing; it’s trespassing. It’s their property.

Most people – when it happens – don’t know what to do. You can call the police on the non-emergency line to report it. Also, my mom had a good idea to post it on Facebook. My brother and his friends are probably the only people with “WHR” stickers on their boards.

All over the news, I hear of things getting stolen. I don’t know about you, but its mostly bad news. So why don’t they call it the bad news?

There are always gonna be people who go down the wrong path and make bad choices, so make sure to put your valuables in a safe spot.

I wish that the whole world could get along, everyone had jobs and there was no stealing. But I’m 12 and I don’t know much about government and our world yet.

But, at least, please stop stealing!

Hanna Walde, Surrey
