The kids found a credit card yesterday while they were out on a bike ride. They handed it to me and I took it to the Police Station just before I left our home town for work. The Police Officer said she would do her best to locate the owner of the card. She told me to tell the kids that they had done something great! And so I called home just before I drove on in to work to let them know what a great thing they had done. The are proud.
Once before, Tom and I found a wallet of an elderly man. He had dropped it out front of our local Shrine of Remembrance here in Werribee. It was full of cash and cards and stuff. The man was about to pay all his bills. He was so thrilled to get everything back. Tomas leaned back then that this was the right thing to do.
When I was 16 I lost my wallet, a Boy George Velcro one, with about 5 dollars in it. I was very lucky to receive it all in one piece the next week, Someone had handed it to the Police in Traralgon and it had been sent to the Werribee Police Station and delivered to my door.
There are wonderful people out there. I try to remember this when I am seeing some real shit things in the Emergency Department. Time to sleep now people. I love my colleagues with all my heart and I hope they sleep well today after our hard shift.
