Teachers And Lost Engagement Rings
Last month, a woman in Denver lost the engagement ring her fiancé gave her before he passed away a while back. So she was devasted. But luckily, some dude found it in the mud . . . literally, his first name is Dude.
He’s a bartender named Dude Olguin. (Ol-geen.) He gave the ring back and refused a reward. He said he just hopes they’re lifelong friends now.
The place where he works was actually her fiancé’s favorite bar, but they never met. (Here’s a photo.).
Here’s the impact just one amazing teacher can have: A guy in Sacramento named Jamil Jan Kochai came to the U.S. as a kid and didn’t speak English. But his second-grade teacher somehow taught him to read and write in a single year. And for two decades, he’s been trying to track her down to say thanks.
He knew her name was Mrs. Lung, but didn’t know her first name. So he recently wrote an article about it for LitHub.com, which her husband happened to see. So they finally connected over the phone but couldn’t get together because the pandemic was still raging. They finally just met up in person last month though.
Once Jamil learned to write, he fell in love with it, and now he’s a published AUTHOR. His most recent book came out in July. So he had a book signing, and Mrs. Lung showed up to it to surprise him.
