The greatness of being kind

Please permit me the privilege to use this medium to express my heartfelt gratitude to two companies whose noble actions speak voluminously about their reputation and express in quite bold words that indeed they are companies worthy of our continued patronage.

On Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013, I took my family to the West Bay Road Pizza Hut as a part of my “back to school treat.” We were on were on our way home some two hours later when I received a voicemail from Smile Dental Clinic informing me that I had left my wallet at the pizzeria.

My wallet had somehow slid from my pocket and was recovered, thankfully, by the staff of the pizza outlet. Having no way of contacting me, they contacted the Smile Dental Clinic through a business card they found inside my wallet.

The dental center then brought a smile to my face by contacting me.

I was extremely moved by the actions of the two giant companies. I later collected my wallet with its content intact. No amount of words and no amount of reward is sufficient enough to express my joy or to repay these companies for the heroic work they performed.

It is actions like these which will continue to make this nation a prosperous one. As Ella Wheeler Wilcox once said, “The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind.”

Thank you, Pizza Hut West Bay [Road] branch. Thank you, Smile Dental Clinic.
