Fourteen-year-old Savannah Jones was babysitting her four-year-old cousin Zoyee when she heard a knock on the door. When she looked through the peephole, she saw a bald black man in a dark-colored sweatshirt and jeans that she didn’t recognize. After a moment, the door handle started moving.

Jones took her cousin to the master bathroom and locked themselves in. She hid Zoyee behind the toilet and immediately began texting her mother.

The man broke down the door and ransacked the house. At one point, he entered the master bedroom where the girls were hiding, though he didn’t enter the adjoining bathroom where the girls were hiding.

Jones said she wasn’t worried about herself but her younger cousin. Luckily, the robber never seemed aware that they were in the house.

By the time the authorities arrived, the girls were still OK and the man had already escaped. He has yet to be found. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
