Envision you came across a backpack with $3000 cash in it, what would you do?
Dave Tally, a homeless man who is working to build his life back together and find a job found a backpack with $3300 cash in it. Although he dearly needed the money, he kept his honesty and integrity and found the man who owned the backpack and returned the full amount. How many of us would simply find an excuse not to return the bag “It came across my path for a reason, I was meant to keep it.” “It’s too difficult to find the owner of the bag.” “Whoever it belonged to clearly didn’t care for it that much.”
We could all learn a lesson from this man who shows that even when the whole world isn’t watching, it’s still important to do the right thing. In the end, everyone had a happy ending.
