The $20 Hero

While walking through the union of BGSU I looked up to the second floor and saw a man walking up a ramp. I then noticed that he dropped what looked like money. I tried to get to the second floor quickly to save the mans money but the room was flooded with anime characters, considering it was Animarathon. Once I reached the ramp another stranger picked up the money, which I suddenly realized was $20. I told this new stranger that I knew who that money belonged to. The man pulled the money towards him in disbelief. I explained the entire scenario to the man and he eventually handed me the money. I then proceeded to give the money to its rightful owner.

The owner of the cash was very confused, he was completely unaware that he had even lost money but he was happy all the same. I was suddenly smiling cause I had made someones day. The man thanked me and said he would give me part of the money if it wasn’t a $20 bill. I said thank you, and we parted ways. Walking away from the scenario I realized how such a quick decision made a big difference. I could have observed the man dropping something, and just left it at that but instead I decided to investigate and from there I was on a mission.

In todays day and age we make decisions constantly, there is never a day that a decision doesn’t have to be made. So we should practice that ability, and make the best of each decision. I am glad that my quick thinking lead me to become a $20 Hero.
