My friend Sam is a professional photographer and an all around amazing human being. He had his car broken into with both his laptop and his camera stolen. He is not concerned about the items, he can replace those. What he can't replace are the photos that were taken and stored on those items.
I know most of you are not even from Canada, but if you are and even better, if you are from Alberta, please pass this along. A month ago a friend of a friend had her dog stolen and through social networking she was able to find it. In another city, in the care of another person. It was her dog though, and it was found.
