“I stopped on the side of the road and started crying, I was so happy.”
A good deed can be done at any age.
After losing his wallet on his way home from the store, a disabled war veteran, Marc Walsh knew the odds were extremely slim that he would ever see it again.
Walsh, who resides in Detroit, was already struggling financially, so losing his wallet felt like a punch. He even decided not to alert the police because he felt there was no hope of getting him back.
“I was really clueless…I’m self-employed and I don’t make a lot of money…and I have to fend for the money I make…so having money in there that I needed and then not having it, I was pretty torn about it. – Marc Walsh told Lightworkers
The next day, Walsh’s surveillance camera captured an image that restored his faith in humanity.
Walsh was shocked when his roommate called to tell him the wallet had been returned.
Two teenage girls, Makhia and Makyla Vincent, raised her wallet to the camera.
The 14-year-olds found it on the way to school and wanted to return it to its owner.
Walsh told Fox 46 he had his driver’s license, military ID, credit cards and a few hundred dollars in his wallet when he was lost. It was returned to him completely intact.
“I pulled over on the side of the road and started crying, I was so happy,” Walsh told Fox46.
The twin sisters knew it was the right thing to do.
After noticing Walsh’s military ID, they immediately went to find out where he lived in order to return his wallet.
They thought of their grandfather, who was also a veteran.
Basically you have to do the right thing…we knew we had to return the wallet to the rightful person. – said one of the twins.
Walsh was so grateful to the girls that he reached out to local media to properly thank them.
He ended up rewarding the two girls with the money they had returned to him.
When asked why they decided to return the wallet, one of the sisters simply replied, “It would be a mistake to take someone’s wallet, especially when you know who the rightful owner is and where you can find them.”
She is wise beyond her years and is proof that you can make a difference at any age.
“With children like this in our world, I have great hope for the future. – Marc Walsh told Lighworkers.
“Honestly, it’s really really heartwarming. – Walsh told Fox 46
