Thief Has A Change Of Heart Over American Flag Theft.
An Alabama man had had a few too many to drink and was thinking about how it seemed symbols of America are under attack by the liberals. He suddenly felt that soon they may even stop making the American Flag. The intoxicated man saw some flags by a church and grabbed a few as he did not own flag and felt they were about to be a rarity. The Church was of course upset as they had put up the flags in honor of fallen soldiers and couldn't fathom who would steal not only from a church but also ruin a memorial to fallen soldiers. But this robbery was quickly undone after the man sobered up.
The thief returned the flags and left a note to apologize for what he had done.
"In a lengthy message to the church, the person wrote, "I'm sorry for taking the flags. I did not mean any disrespect. "
"I had no idea that there were names of fallen heroes, which makes it even worse, as if stealing from the church wasn't bad enough to begin with," the person continued.
The message concluded, "I'm not a bad person, just a little messed up."
The church was more than happy about the returned flags and showed kindness to the man on their Facebook page.
"Praise God our stolen flags from First Baptist Church Grand Bay were returned with a note of apology. We would like to let whoever it was, since you didn't sign your note, know that your apology is accepted and you are invited to attend our Church services anytime."
"The church's pastor, Royce Dubose commented on the theft explaining why pressing charges never came to his mind.
"You can tell whoever took [the flags] was very, very upset with themselves," Dubose added. "To be honest, we don't want to know. And not because we are angry at them, but because we don't want to embarrass them to feel any more remorse than they are already feeling."
We need more of these kinds of stories. The MSM is always going on about BLM and blaming the police for trying to keep the peace. It's nice to see that people still have some patriotism and even more so the good morals to do forgive those who make misguided mistakes.
