The holidays are here!!! A time of joy and family and celebration!
But every year there are sad stories that try to break the Christmas spirit…like one Staten Island family who had their Christmas lights stolen off of their front lawn. What brings someone to do this!?
Well…a retired Policeman, Michael Reilly, came across a video of the theft on a private page…and posted it publicly! With the help of Facebook…that family got their lights back!
Viewed nearly 130 000 times and shared by almost 3000 people…it worked! Michael edited his post with the video to say:
The man in the video returned the lights with a note apologizing.
The family who owned the lights extends a big THANK YOU to everyone for sharing!
And here’s the note!
Admitting you were wrong is one of the most courageous things one can do…so strange as it sounds, I’m proud of the thief!
