Faith in humanity restored
To the editor:
A few weeks ago I was in Loomis Park between 9 and 11 a.m.. I was walking along the paved trail that follows the river. There were two young men that pulled up and got out of their vehicle. One was walking a large dog that looked like a husky and the other was riding a long board (a type of skateboard). They were driving a tan/gold Chevy Avalanche with a Fort Dodge Dodgers sticker in the back window. I left the park before they did, and continued with my plans for the day – I had a few errands to run.
Unknown to me, when I reached into my pocket to get my cellphone out, my ID fell out onto the ground. When I pulled into my driveway, I saw there was a piece of paper with something written on it stuck in my storm door. It said something like, “We found your ID on the ground at Loomis and figured you needed it. It’s in your mailbox. – The Longboarders.”
I have yet to see this vehicle out and about or the boys to tell them how much headache they saved me and how much I appreciate what they did. I am 26 years old and in the past couple years have started to lose my faith in the goodness of people, until this happened. They could have just walked past my ID on the ground and shrugged it off, but they didn’t.
So, if anyone knows these young men – please tell them how thankful I am for their actions!
