Karma is good

Today, I learned via Facebook that a plumber in New York, who lost everything in the Hurricane, and who has been graciously and generously helping others recover from their own damage, won a large lottery jackpot – a couple million dollars.

My guess is that he will use some of that money for himself, but that he will also use a lot of it to help his fellow human victims of the hurricane.  If he doesn’t, I will lose all faith in most humans when money looms large in their life.  I just don’t think this man will get selfish just because he won some money.

I love it when people who deserve to win to.  I compare this with the Hostess CEO’s, and the bankruptcy judge, who thought it was good to give the CEO’s $1.8 million in bonuses, while firing the 18,000+ employees of the company.

Also, today, I saw a man return a wallet to a man who had dropped it, and did not know he had.  Honesty does persevere in many humans.
