Each day we are bombarded with stories about people treating other people badly, but my story is just the opposite. Mason, W.Va. resident John T. Kearns, Jr. is someone who went out of his way to treat others well.
Last weekend, he found some of the contents of a wallet along the road, including cash, gift cards and a check with my name on it. These valuables had been blown out of an open convertible driving along the road. Rather than keeping them for himself, Mr. Kearns used the phone number on my check to contact me and explain what he had found. He insisted that he mail the valuables to me, and they arrived in today’s mail.
I appreciate Mr. Kearns’ honesty, his willingness to do the right thing when he could easily have kept them for himself, and the example he has set for the rest of us.
