A homeless man named Glenn James in Boston who is in his 50s and lives in a homeless shelter came across a large bag left by a young man. He opened the bag and saw bundles of cash and travelers’ checks.
Having Integrity No Matter What
He notified the police right away and made sure the bag was safely given back to the young man. And what’s even more amazing is a guy named Ethan Whittington watched reports of this news and felt like he had to do something to help this man. He raised over $70,000 for Glenn.

I Came Across This Article on Yahoo! News…
I thought it was amazing. But what really struck my attention was today I was talking to a friend earlier in the day. She was venting about her frustrations and how she felt people in the world no longer cared for others.
She thought the world had become a dog-eat-dog world where people have become selfish and as long as they benefit, they could care less how it affected others.
She told me a specific experience of a job interview which she didn’t get though it had gone superbly
well. The manager had called her and let her know she was hired. But another student who was working there and she would work there side-by-side with her, unfortunately, said something to this man.
He called back later and changed his mind about offering her the job. My friend immediately knew it was this student because she had felt negative vibes from her. My friend was actually more qualified than this student, but due to her insecurity, she filled the boss’s ears.
Anger and devastation hit my friend both around the same time. I felt bad for my friend, but I couldn’t deny that I had heard other experiences of people letting their selfish interests take precedence. It begged the question: Do we live in a world where people only care about themselves?
On Asked Why He Returned the Money
The homeless man, Glenn James said: “God has always very well looked after me. Even if I were desperate for money, I would not have kept even a penny.”
Ethan Whittington replied on being asked why he raised the money for Glenn: “When I read the story yesterday about this man, you know, being in the situation that he’s in and doing the honorable thing, it makes you feel good. It makes you feel like there’s still people in this world that still care.”
