Cristhian Reyes, a senior at Miami Senior High School, went to the Marlins opening day game and at some point during the game the unthinkable happen. He reached in his pocket and his wallet was gone and got the feeling you get when you lose something very important to you. You know that feeling. Then this happened…
Despite searching throughout, Reyes could not find his wallet. Reyes had left his seat when he noticed the missing item. “I was looking all over, like the seats, to see if I had just dropped it,” he said. “I was paranoid because I had my school ID. It had some important stuff in there so I could contact other people, and I had money in there, obviously.”
Later that week, a man entered the office at Miami Senior High School. “This nice gentleman walked in, and I said ‘May I help you?'” said Registrar Barbara Piedra. “And he said, ‘Somebody lost this wallet. One of your students. I think it’s one of your students from this school, lost this wallet at the game, and I just want to make sure he gets it back.'”
With the wallet was a note which read in part, “I added $20 to it so you know the world is a great place. Do me a favor and when you get the chance, do something nice for someone else.”
The note was left unsigned. “Looked at the letter, I was in awe of the letter with the wallet, and I said ‘No, no, no, we need to do something with it,'” said Miami Senior High School Vice Principal Felix Zabala, “so I decided I’m gonna take a picture. So I took a picture of the letter and the wallet, and I emailed it to the entire staff.”
Man. What a great story. More people need to exist like this and do the right thing versus that quick come up on loose cash. Props to that anonymous person that turned in the wallet.
