We live in a time when many think that there are very few "good people" left in this world. However, I recently had an experience that once again reinforces my feeling that there are a lot of good people in Kingman.
On Thursday afternoon, I had unknowingly dropped my wallet in the parking lot of the local Wal-Mart store as I entered my vehicle. Since I had just returned from a vacation I was carrying quite a bit of cash, a blank business check and, of course, all my credit cards, ID and other things that one has in a wallet.
I did not realize that my wallet was missing until my friend, Page McDonald, got a call from a lady who stated she had found my wallet and wanted to return it.
When Page and I met up with Amy Gonzales and her mother-in-law in a parking lot, she handed me back the wallet with everything intact.
Ms. Gonzales refused to accept any kind of reward for this act of kindness, saying it was simply the right thing to do.
How refreshing is it to know that good people like Ms. Gonzales and her mother-in-law are members of our community and live by the Golden Rule.
My heartfelt thanks go out to Amy and her mother-in-law for their act of honesty and good will.
