A week ago, I lost my school identification at the Grape Bowl. On Monday, Sept. 16, it was returned to me by someone who was generous enough and cared about others.

To whomever it was who turned it in to Lakewood School, I just want to say a special thanks to you! The thing that you did means a lot to me.

The first thing I said when I realized it was gone was that I must find my I.D. I looked everywhere, from my house to the store that we had been to before the game. I also looked at the snack bar to see if anyone had turned in an ID card with a blue lanyard connected to it. After I went to the snack bar and was told that no one had turned one in, I went to the parking spot in which we had parked. I retraced my steps from the truck all the way to the bleachers. I even looked under the bleachers — boy, was that hard. I thought I would have to go to the office and ask if they would make me a new ID card. And I thought I would never get the blue lanyard back.

Today (Sept. 16) it was handed to me, and I thought to myself, “Oh wow, there is someone out there who actually cares about letting others have what they worked for.”

Thank you for being honest and caring.
