Let me get a show of hands……….

I often hear people engage in conversation about how so long are the days of people genuinely caring for one another and just doing random acts of kindness.  Can I tell you that good deeds still exist?  How many of you truly believe that there is still goodness out there?  Let me get a show of hands.  You know on a regular basis we are consumed with all the bad or let me stop there and say situations that are not so ideal that occur in the world.  I want to share a GREAT DEED that happened on this past Saturday.

I had the pleasure of attending the Black Book Festival in LA.  The day was beautiful.  The time was just right.  I met an amazing group of individuals.  There were some future connections that had been made that day.  I was looking forward to the real relationships that would soon be established as a result of attending the festival.  I had the honor of speaking on Crowd Funding which I am very passionate about.

After the festival had concluded there was a woman who was walking back to her car.  She was getting ready to head home.  She decided to make a quick phone call.  This woman was engaged in a conversation on the phone with a confidant that she often shares life stories with.  The woman shared how the details of the festival and all that had taken place.  On the way to her car with the phone still in hand, she stumbled upon a wallet.   This wallet was in plain view.  There was a wallet but no owner to the wallet anywhere around.  There were several rows of cars.  It was practically deserted.  It was just the woman and the wallet.  It was very quiet.  There was one single family that was walking towards the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The woman bent down to pick up the wallet.  Her thoughts went to I wonder where the owner is located?  Could he/she be at a restaurant?  What if they were stranded without gas?  The woman began searching.  She tried looking for clues as to the car of the owner.  She wanted to find the owner and return that which was lost.  Where was the owner?  There was only one answer to that question so we will have to resume answering thattomorrow.  Remember what I always say.  Ignoring one’s conscious is neither safe nor right.  I will see you next time.  ~ Dr. Letitia Wright
