Honesty Paid Off For Dave

In the final analysis, there is no other solution to a man’s problems but the day’s honest work, the day’s honest decisions, the day’s generous utterance, and the day’s good deed. — Claire Booth Luce

~~~~ Good News of the Day: About a year ago, a homeless man in Arizona found a bag full of cash and made a fateful decision: he returned it. 49-year-old Dave Tally was in debt, unemployed, had lost his driver’s license for DUI violations, sleeping on a mat when he found $3,300 at a local light-rail station. When he returned it to its owner, a college kid, the gratitude and kindness of the kid touched him. “He hadn’t had that feeling in a while,” the reporter Dianna Nanez said. His story, though, ended up attracting donations that gave Dave some immediate support and it gave him a new leash on life. Now, he’s working in his dream job, managing a community garden, and building a program that allows other homeless to volunteer in the garden. http://premiere.whatcounts.com/t?ctl=169E442:C3009629A010612CF52BE832464A67D6B4B847859706E37D&
