Where’s my wallet?

Lori Kerr lost her wallet. She was going from forum to forum on campus for the Chancellors’ Search, and midday she realized her wallet was missing. Oh, no. She backtracked. It was gone. She spent her breaks cancelling her credit cards – she was soon leaving on a trip.

When she returned home from the trip, a special express package was in the mail. Six dollars in postage. She opened the package. Her wallet, in pristine condition. And there was a note saying where it was found and a hope it’d arrive in the mail soon, so she wouldn’t worry.

Whoever found it – and they didn’t give their name – found her address on her driver’s license and mailed the wallet. Anonymously.

She is thankful for its safe return. I think she’s thankful for something more: that she works in a community where such acts of kindness are commonplace. To the person who took the time and spent the money to do this, she says Thanks. It means more than you know.
