A heart-lifting example for all to live by


    Here's a really good story about the goodness of one of Statesboro's exemplary citizens.
    I dropped my wallet while leaving Walmart. It contained hundreds of dollars in cash and more in receipts and credit cards.
    I didn't notice it missing until 15 minutes later. I returned to my parking space and found nothing. I prepared myself for the worst when I got home. Sitting down and pondering the mess I was in and how to resolve all the difficulties I was about to encounter, I heard the doorbell ring. Melinda Akins of Brooklet had delivered my wallet and wouldn't even take any sort of reward!
    Now that really inspires me to know that in this community there are people so bound by honesty and live by what they believe in so much so as to do things in secret and expect no reward. This is heart-lifting and an example for every human to live by.
