LETTER: Call it luck. Call it karma.

A display of honesty and kindness for returning tackle box

Call it luck. Call it karma. Call it whatever you like. To me, it was a simple act of kindness and honesty.

We were on  our way to Arrow Lakes for a week of camping, fishing, and all the other activities, in our rented motor home when one of the compartment locks vibrated open and the tackle box took an unexpected leave of absence. So much for fishing!

Last Sunday, Gary “Woody” Woodworth of Chilliwack phoned our son in Mission, whose fishing license was in the tackle box, to tell him that he picked up the tackle box on the side of the road outside of Vernon. This box contained perhaps $200 or more of tackle, et all. Woody could have kept it, but he chose to contact the owner instead.

Many thanks to Woody for his display of honesty and kindness for returning this. It certainly enforces my belief in the spiritual connection of mortal humans.

Kudos Woody, good on you!
