Sarah Darling of Kansas City, Mo. is someone who understands the value of helping others in need. While she was walking by a man who some would consider to be “down on his luck”, she dropped a donation into the homeless man’s cup. However, the next day she realized she had donated a little more than intended when she looked down at her hand and noticed her engagement ring was missing. She immediately returned to the homeless man’s usual spot, where he was there waiting…with her ring.
Ray Harris, 55, didn’t notice Darling had accidentally dropped her engagement ring in with the change until he packed up for the day. Harris thought the diamond and platinum ring was a fake. Then he had it appraised. When the jeweler offered Harris $4,000.00 on the spot, he thought about taking the money until he realized his grandfather raised him to be honest.
Harris said, “I am not trying to say that I am no saint, but I am no devil either.” Mr. Harris may not consider himself a “saint”, but I bet there was a period of time when Ms. Darling saw him as her “Ray” of hope.
