An act of hon­esty

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

I left my purse hang­ing in the wash­room of Chap­ters at St. Vi­tal Cen­tre. My hands were full of pur­chases, and I didn’t re­al­ize my purse was miss­ing un­til ar­riv­ing at my apart­ment clear across the city. In a panic, my daugh­ter turned the car around and headed straight back to the shop­ping cen­tre. It seemed to take for­ever, as we caught ev­ery red light. Upon ar­rival, we went di­rectly to the wash­room in Chap­ters. Of course, my purse was no longer there. With sink­ing hearts, we headed for the lost and found and re­ported the miss­ing purse. Sure enough, a purse had been turned in, and after we pro­vided a de­scrip­tion it was handed to us. To our amaze­ment, noth­ing was miss­ing. A hun­dred dol­lars in cash, keys, credit cards, driver’s li­cence — ev­ery­thing was in­tact. I was so re­lieved and thank­ful. I want to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the per­son who turned in my purse for their hon­esty and kind­ness.
