One ring to restore my faith
AS a scholar of human rights and peace and conflict studies, my outlook on humanity is often pretty bleak. However, sometimes people rekindle my faith in humanity through little random acts of kindness.
After my university convocation recently, I happened to leave a special ring in the restroom and only realized its absence from my finger once I had returned home hours later.
Knowing the chances of finding my ring untouched in the bathroom or at the lost and found in the security office were slim, I thought I would try my luck anyway. I returned to look for my ring at the university.
After a fruitless search in the bathroom, I went to security, fingers crossed and mind full of doubt, only to find that some wonderful and kind human being had indeed taken my ring to the lost and found.
To that delightful person: I didn’t know how to express my gratitude, so I thought a public thank you would let you know how happy I was to find my ring safe and sound.
Thank you! Your kindness will not be forgotten.
