With all the negative things going on around the world, this story is reminding everyone that there are still awesome people out there. A California teen was recently applauded for his actions as he is the perfect definition of a good Samaritan.
Rhami Zeini was on his way home from school when he spotted a black purse in the middle of the road. He picked it up and discovered its jaw-dropping content: $10,000!
As he stared at more bills than he’d ever seen in his life, the Laguna Blanca High School junior decided to consult his parents before turning the lost item in to the police.
“To me, I figured this is the right thing to do if I take it and find whoever’s purse it was, because if the roles were reversed and I had lost something with a significant sum of money inside, I know I would want it back for sure.”
The sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post that a watch officer was able to contact the owner and return the money to her, writing she “was very grateful.”
They then added that the unidentified woman had likely left it on the roof of her car before driving off to go on a hike.
But Zeini wasn’t left empty-handed for his good deed. The purse’s owner was so touched by the teen’s honest actions that she gave him a $100 reward.
The Sheriff’s department was so inspired by Zeini’s honesty that they shared the story on their Facebook page, writing, “In a world where we are bombarded with bad news, we are excited to share a positive story with you.”
They also thanked the teen on Twitter: “What a great example of doing the right thing even when no one is watching.”
Faith in humanity restored!
