Still good people

MOULTRIE — Editor's note: This letter has been corrected from its original version.

Dear editor:

People often talk and give a sobering assessment on the state the world is coming to today. They talk about how people have lost their way and good old-fashion morals have gone out the window. That may be true to some extent, but not everyone behaves this way. There are still so many people who are honest and try their best to do what they feel in their hearts is right. I recently had the pleasure to encounter such a person.

I own a car dealership in Moultrie. I often drive one of my vehicles as a demo. In 2003, I was driving a demo that someone wanted to buy. I sold the vehicle to this person and that was the last I heard of it.

I also lost my wallet in 2003. I thought that someone must have taken it. I searched weeks for it but, it was never found. With identity fraud occurring every day, I was worried this was going to happen to me.

 I closed all personal information items that I could. I chalked up the money inside the wallet as gone.

Then, out of the blue about two weeks ago I received a phone call from a lady in Tallahassee. While detailing the demo I had sold, she found my wallet between the seats! She asked if I would give my address so she could return it to me.

Within a couple of days my wallet was back in my possession. I could not believe that after all these years all of my belongings were still there. My money, credit cards, pictures and even a couple of paychecks I had not cashed. She returned it all. Although I knew there are still many people like Diana, stories that you hear every day makes one worry about how people are becoming less caring.

Diana has since restored my faith in humanity for us all. I was so proud of Diana’s act of kindness that I sent her a nice reward and a personal thank you letter.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
