Moved by the honesty

Dear Editor:

The other night I got home and realized I’d lost my wallet on the walk home. I was dismayed, as it had more than $400 in cash, not to mention my driver’s license and credit cards.

I went back to retrace my steps and eventually gave up and went home. The next day, I got a call from the city of Aspen roads department that they’d found my wallet! I went to pick it up that same day, and much to my surprise, there was not a dollar missing! I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the person who found my wallet, and the integrity of all the people involved in returning it to me.

This act of honesty is a microcosm of the general attitude of cooperation and helpfulness that makes this town and this valley such a choice place to live.
