Andrew Sipowicz was so angry when he discovered a dent in his Ford Mustang, sure enough, he could not find the culprit, but what he saw changed his mood and outlook on life.
Andrew underwent an overwhelming experience when he found a note tacked in his windshield from a sixth-grader.
11-year-old Ziarra Griffin knew who made the dent, her spirit of justice did not allow her to act like she doesn't know anything, so she decided to write a note to the owner of the car.
It read, "If you're wondering what happened to your car, bus 449 hit your car. It stops here every day to drop me off. She hit and run. Sorry."
Ziarra closed with a sketch of the getaway vehicle.
thanks to her honest note the bus driver was held accountable and Andrew is now getting his car fixed.
"I could have acted like it didn't happen, but I chose to do something about it because my mom always said, 'When you see somebody doing the wrong thing, you have to do the right thing,'" Ziarra said.
her mom, Tocarra, did not support her daughter's move, "I don't want anyone to think it was me," Tocarra said. "My daughter taught me how to stay kind, stay compassionate, always knowing the right thing is always the right thing."
the owner of the car then responded, "I couldn't believe you left me that note. When I first saw my car, I was angry and then I saw your note and it changed my entire mood."
"To know that there are people out there with that kind of integrity and honesty, it's something I'm going to remember for the rest of my life."
