This is one of those stories that automatically puts a smile on your face and tears in your eyes.
The Denver Post reports that 31-year old Evan Todd, who was wounded in the April 1999 Columbine High School shootings that killed 13 people, got a great gift last month when a homeless Vietnam veteran called to tell him that he had found Todd’s championship football ring that he lost over a decade ago.
According to the story, 60-year old Bobby Smith found the ring with Todd’s name on it while “looking for arrowheads” in San Luis Obispo, California. The story goes on to report that Smith has been living out of his car or in low-income housing.
One of the best parts of the story is the fact that Smith refused to take $2,000 from a local collector, who offered to buy the ring. Todd and Smith met on Fox and Friends last Thursday (video above).
Todd was a defensive tackle on the 1999 Columbine football team that seven months after the tragedy won the Colorado 5A state championship.
A website has been set-up to help Smith, who has a disabled daughter. You can donate to Smith at gofundme.com/championvet.
