  1. Why would someone leave keys in their vehicle? In this day and age it is nothing short of irresponsible, an invitation to children to steal a car.

    • Many reasons: it’s fun to joy ride, it’s dangerous, on a dare, to get a car, because you are young and bored, because you are young and stupid. I’m not saying they are good reasons. Not all of his Children respect the Commandments. We need to remove temptation when we can.

  2. I was there to witness it all LCSW was amazing at work and truly a blessing that we have in lakewood ! Keep up the good work !!!
