This was seen in Sitka, Alaska in one of the closed stores. I am sure it gives the thieves a pause before they consider entering this premises.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
