Letter: Caring spirit returns a treasure

To the Editor:

I was visiting in Red Wing last week and took my two grandsons on a riverboat ride. In the confusion of caring for two little boys, I left my iPad on a bench by the water. When I returned home to Hastings and realized it was missing, I called the Depot and was amazed to learn that my iPad had been turned in to those folks working there.

Not only am I filled with gratitude, but I am also energized as I reflect on the fact that the world is full of honest and kind people. So much of the news today speaks of hatred and vengeance. This person’s actions speak of righteousness and a caring spirit. To you, and to all who live a life of goodness, I say thanks. You returned my iPad that is indeed a treasured possession.
