- The scribe stopped his car and picked the wallet

- Shomari drove to the address indicated on the licence and handed over all the items to the rightful owner
Make a stranger smile today. These are probably the words NBC journalist Shomari Stone lives by.
The award-winning US scribe was driving back home on Wednesday, December 9, when he spotted a black wallet in the middle of the road.
He got out of his car and proceeded to pick it up.
When Shomari looked inside, he found $500 which roughly amounts to KSh 55,745.
The news anchor also came across credit cards, a driving licence and insurance documents.
Luckily, the owner’s address was indicated on his insurance card and Shomari drove all the way to his home to surprise the owner.
The journalist knocked and a humble, happy couple walked out.
He then handed out the wads of cash and returned the wallet with each content still inside.
“I’m driving on Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda, Maryland. I see a black wallet in the middle of the street. I stop, look inside, find $500 cash, credit cards, and insurance cards. Drove to the address on the license. The family opened the door in shock. They’re filled with joy,” Shomari narrated the whole ordeal.
Also, YEN.com.gh reported how an unnamed police officer warmed his way into people’s hearts after he was seen helping a trader push his handcart in a busy highway.
The water vendor was pushing a mkokoteni that was probably three or four times his weight and the burden became a little too much to bear.
A kind cop who was in the vicinity rushed to the trader’s rescue and put his muscles to work as soon as possible.
A bunch of cars were parked bumper to bumper as the traffic snarl-up ate its way through the road.
Motorists watched in amazement as one driver decided to take photos of the cop’s act of kindness.
When the photos were posted on Twitter by user Ma3Route, Kenyans were proud of the sight that met their eyes.
