Thieves: It's Never Too Late to Make Amends

Eliza Murphy shares the heartwarming story of a family who received an anonymous letter containing rings stolen fifteen years ago:

Attention all thieves...especially the ones who've stolen things from us, whether it's as low-value as Grandma Bonnie Peters' garden tools or as high-value as my husband's and my house in Maryland. It is never too late to relieve the pangs of conscience that are keeping you awake at night, lowering your resistance to infections, driving you to drink, or keeping stupid pop songs running through your head when you need to think in order to do your job. Return or replace what you've stolen. You may be surprised by how much better you feel.
