Homeless Man Finds Backpack Filled With Lots Of Cash

What would you do if you found a backpack filled with $50,000? Be honest now. Would you consider keeping it? Maybe tuck a few bucks away before giving it back? Or are you as honest as the guy from Boston who didn’t think twice about giving it back, even though he really needed it?

The man, who has not been named, found a backpack filled with $42,000 worth of travelers checks and cash at a mall. The first thing he did was flag down a police officer  and hand it over to him. A friend of the man’s said: “People will probably tell him he’s nuts, but homeless people are the first to help you out. They don’t have anything, but they’ll give you what they do have.”

Kind of warms your heart, doesn’t it? And makes you wonder what you would do in the same situation. Or maybe you believe in karma like I do. And sleeping well at night. Or just being a decent human being.

So when someone gets on your last nerve today, or does something to make you shake your head and wonder. Think of the homeless guy in Boston who is still homeless and sleeping on the streets. But sleeping well. And maybe karma will come back around for him. I hope so.
