  • I just read an amazing article this morning after I turned on my PC and I thought its nice to share this in my blog. Personally, I find this as an amazing stuff to read on this Holy Thursday. After reading, I realized its so amazing how God´s goodness works through the people He uses. Someone said before, "There just aren´t good people in the world anymore", he was wrong. Today I disagreed!.
  • When we were brought up to do right thing and live by the golden rule, I think overall, most people ARE good. I believe that if we do good things, the favor is returned to us someday:) I believe there are still honest people out there who do care. I think if more people would just be a little bit kinder, there is less conflict in this world, and everybody would be much happier.
  • LOS ANGELES – As she walked from a post office, Talon Curtis thought she'd found one of those gimmicky sweepstakes offers on the ground that scream something like "$357,959.55" in big bold letters and "This is not a real check" in much smaller type. But just as she was about to do her part for a cleaner planet and deliver the paper from the parking lot to a trash can, she noticed it was a real cashier's check with a real signature.

  • "I couldn't believe it. I almost passed out," Curtis, who works as a loan negotiator, told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "I have never seen a check that big. Not in my possession, anyway."

  • She immediately set out to find its rightful recipient, but it was Saturday afternoon and the banks were closing. On Monday, with help from KCAL-TV reporter Dave Malkoff, she located the check's owner, who had arrived at her bank in a panic.

  • "I think she had walked in at the same time the bank manager called me back," Curtis said. "I could hear her walking up to him. and I could hear all this commotion in the background."

  • Curtis said she spoke briefly with the woman on the phone about a possible meeting, but Pacific Mercantile Bank instructed her to mail the check to them instead.

  • Not willing to take a chance on the mail, Curtis delivered it personally. A bank employee confirmed it had arrived.

  • Curtis said she never thought of keeping the check for herself, and she declined the woman's offer of a reward. Still, she's just a little disappointed.

  • "I just wanted to see her face," Curtis said, laughing. "I just wanted to let her know that there are honest people left in this world."
  • Pretty darn cool huh? What do you think? How do you repay someone for such kindness? I wouldn't even know where to begin thanking this kind person! I'm so thrilled. It's nice to hear stories like that..kind of restores your faith in people.
  • Have a blessed Holy Thursday Everyone. God bless!.


  1. Wow... I wonder what I'd have done if I was the one who found the check. Should I have kept it? But then, I would have this guilt inside of me forever and I wouldn't be able to sleep every night. No, I wouldn't keep it... I would trace and return the check to the owner but on the contrary, I wouldn't refuse a small reward... haha... can't hurt, as they say "what goes around comes around". Thanks for sharing Luth. I believe that there are still good and honest people out there.

  3. as they always say...honesty is the best policy!

    Like Dora..I wouldn't refuse the reward either LoL

  4. Butul tu Dora,

    At least we make a difference in this world because we know we make the right thing. But I guess, klu itu owner offer a small rewards I should take it hehe. As you said, can´t hurt hehe..

  5. You´re right Phil,

  6. Hi Nessa,

    In today's societies all across the globe there seem to be few people like this any longer. But its good to hear that there are still wonderful people out there. They seem hard to find, but they (hopefully "we") are out there.


Thanks for your comment, I´ll be back to you.
