One ring to re­store my faith

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

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.
