Letter: Good Samaritan at the post office

Recently in the news I have heard nothing but sad stories about horrific things that people have done with no respect for human decency. So when I opened my mail yesterday, I was surprised to find this wonderful note:

"Hope I did the right thing. I discovered your tax returns and other letters atop the postage machine at the Menlo Park post office with no stamps on them. I put proper postage on them and dropped them in the slot. I hope that was your intent. My name is Robert, also of Menlo Park."

Robert of Menlo Park, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and for restoring my faith in humanity and for demonstrating that human kindness does still exist, especially in Menlo Park.
