Honesty is a person's most valuable asset. Good name, good reputation, and good word depend on the individual's quality of honesty. A man that acts under the values of selfless honesty is elevated within his community. It is respected and treasured.
This is exactly what happened to a woman and her 16-year-old daughter when they found$400 leather Coach Purse stuffed with cash and credit cards on Daytona Beach and alerted authorities about the discovery. Daytona Beach is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States.
Darlene Curley, who was visiting from Etowah, Tenn., says she and her daughter were about to take a swim in the ocean on Sunday evening before heading back to Tennessee when they spotted the purse and other items on the sand. And thought someone may have drowned or something.
Curley called the police because she and her daughter wanted to make sure that the person was all right, the Beach Safety Ocean Rescue officers responded and put the items inside a lifeguard station to dry. When they counted $13,087.88 in cash they locked the bay and left two officers to guard it.
A police report shows May Self of Harwood, Md., eventually claimed the items.
Curley told the newspaper that Self called her to say thanks and wants to meet in person.
