    for my birthday i gave myself a new camera. a compact SONY.
    normally i have the camera in my coat pocket and my hand in the pocket over it.

    today i was with somebody and talking and i guess i was waving my hands around.
    when i put my hand in my pocket it was gone. i didn’t even have it a week.

    i feel really sad and angry.

    i’m not even going to replace it.

    it's unfortunate that you have to be aware of your surroundings at all time. one of the reasons i left L.A. is because i got tired of looking over my shoulder. i'm sure the east coast is worse.

    Do you think it was the person you were talking to that got it?

    Weird. I got jacked on my birthday, too A couple of years ago. I was talking on my cellie at the ATM. I only withdrew $60. A "brotha" snatched my money and my phone. I got in my car and followed them (there were three more "brothas" in the car. Then dude got out the car like "what you gone' do?". And, I realized I wasn't gonna do nothing. I was so upset, I couldn't even remember their license plate numbers. It hurts to be robbed by your blood. It's not the money, its that these are the brothas that I look to for protection. I guess they were never taught that.

    jamesfrmphilly ... i'm so sorry that you had to experience such a thing.

    Happy Belated Birthday too.

    Please be careful in them streets.

    I know you hate your stuff being taken, but folk are taking lives, not just cameras, phones, and money.

    As bad as it is, it could have been so much worse.

    Please Please Please Be Careful Brother James.

    You too Sister Liberty ... you out there chase'n the bad guys ... :nono:

    Let's just all be careful and stay alive for as long as we can ... we need to survive.

    Someone has to survive ... let's let it be us ... :grouphug:

    Brother James ... i just googled ... "compact SONY" ... and it's priced from $54.99 to a gazillion dollars.

    I was finna say i might be able to replace it ... but you aint hardly had the $54.99 one ... did you? :)

    Even if it is the $54.99 one, wait'n on my money to be right, it might be next year's gift ... :shame:

    Please buy yourself another one Brother James ... you only live once and it is what you want.

    You deserve it. Splurge on yourself. Do It! Get your camera again.

    They didn't take nuth'n from you that you can't get again ... get it!

    I Love You!

    :heart:

    Don't be too angry, that's not good energy inside of your body, soul, and strength.

    If you buy it again, and have what you want for yourself, it might make some of the anger go away.

    I Love You!

    :heart:
