Letter: Still good in people

To the Editor:

A couple of days ago, I went shopping, stopping first at Joseph’s, then at the dollar store in Crystal Lake. After I arrived at the dollar store, I noticed my wallet was missing. I went back to Joseph’s and it was not there. I retraced my steps back to the dollar store and did not find it on the ground anywhere. A man’s wallet, like a lady’s purse, contains the critical items of daily life activity – cash, identification information, credit cards. It also contains many personal items. I went into full panic mode as I considered what I had to do to replace items and block use. Before I left the store, I decided to ask the cashiers if anyone had turned in a wallet. One of them said “yes” and proceeded to show me my wallet – intact. She said a customer found it just inside the store and turned it in.

We live in a world that in many ways is no longer kind and considerate of others. There is a growing feeling of intolerance. There also is a greater attitude of aggressiveness among people. Thankfully, the person who found my wallet showed kindness and consideration. It gives me a renewed sense of hope that people are basically good and decent. Whoever that person was, I would like to say “thank you.”
