Often small acts of kindness go unnoticed in the general workplace, while the bizarre and tragic command the headlines. This is unfortunate since there are numerous good deeds occurring daily in our community, and the good citizens are mostly unrewarded.

I wish to commend Officer Fisher, Der Lo and the entire Social Security staff here in Crescent City for finding my Social Security Card in their parking lot and notifying me that they would keep it safe until I could retrieve it. Not only were they professional and responsible in their duties, they were also kind and benevolent.

They may say they were only andquot;doing their job,andquot; but they did much more. Their pleasant smiles accomplished more than simple words can express. Thank you all for protecting my identity and treating me as family.
