I myself have been the victim of a burglary. My house was broken into twice in one month. We most my wife's wedding ring, some bottles of rum, a few gadgets and some food items from out the fridge. The biggest thing for me though was the violation of my privacy. I felt disrespected to know that someone (from my own community) I don't know was going through my stuff, seeing and touching things that only family members should be privy to. There was no loss of life or harm to my family members so we just moved on.
