If your faith in humanity needs a little shot in the arm, this is your story.
I’ve been thinking a lot about good news recently. It’s easy to fill a blog with bad news because let’s face it, the world is full of bad news. But there’s a lot of good and unexpected things happening every day:
When Billy Ray Harris noticed a dazzling diamond ring in his change cup, he didn’t even consider keeping it for himself.
The homeless Missouri man didn’t realize at first that a generous passerby had accidentally dropped the sentimental piece of jewelry in his cup along with some money, KCTV reports. But once he saw it, the man who was raised by his reverend grandfather knew he would find a way to give it back.
So, when Sarah Darling returned the following day hoping that her engagement ring had fallen out of her wallet when she gave Harris some charity, he immediately handed it over.
“I think in our world, we often just jump to the worst conclusion,” Darling told KCTV. “It just makes you realize there are good people out there.”
We could all use to be reminded of that sometimes.
