When an Engagement Ring Goes Missing, an Atheist Comes to the Rescue

Last week, Hayley Plack realized her 1.1-carat engagement ring was no longer on her finger and (as you can imagine) began freaking out. Her fiancé, Andrew Frank, didn’t have any leads. So they began retracing her steps:

Desperate, he and Plack searched their trash, picking through wet coffee filters and rotten lettuce. They re-rode her bus route and got a number for the people who clean the vehicles. At the metro station, they found the manager.

As riders walked past, Plack broke down.

“I’ll pray for you. Keep your faith in God,” the manager told them. “Let’s hope a godly person finds it.”

A godly person didn’t find it.

But it turns out an atheist did:

[Siranjan] Kulatilake, who describes himself as an atheist, returned to his apartment and examined the ring.

“What do I do with this?” he wondered. “It’s obviously precious to someone.”

How he found the ring’s owner, and how they dealt with the reward money, just makes for a wonderful story. Read the whole thing here.

Makes your heart grow three sizes bigger, doesn’t it?
