With open arms, we welcome the armed robbers with their stockpiled arsenals of weapon. Afterwards, we went to sleep while it is yet daylight. Thus, their operation became relatively easy, they did not even need their arms they carted away our goods.

However,the lucid amongst us brought us back to our senses. "how many years of wailing will restore to us our stolen goods", they asked us.

But we only need to become more vigilant and shirk sleeping in the daylight.
