    Pretty amazing story Many! I’m glad you were able to recover your computer, and most importantly, you showed that person compassion. What a great example!

    There are many lessons to be learned here Manny… but I think that you handled it knowing that it was all part of a bigger plan. He will never forget you or how you handled it… you made this a major teachable moment for him. Now you sir… need to invest in an auto backup solution… like Mozy…. y eso es rapido sabes?

    Wow Manny! Amazing story! Thank you for sharing. I am going to SF on Thursday, I will feel very protected 😉 I will print this out an give it to the officers I see at the airport.

    Oh, wow. I can’t believe that they recovered your laptop, and that you were so nice about it. This is the behavior that we all hope we can model ourselves, but seldom do. I am glad it all worked out.

    This was a cool story with a cool ending for you. You should most definitively write a book. You can really tell a story and hook your audience to it.

    That is an amazing story!

    Pilar, that’s a wonderful idea. I guarantee you they will circulate it 🙂 Have a great trip and don’t forget to protect your laptop.

  • Great turnout God Bless You Manny I am happy this had a happy ending for both.

    So many people preach forgiveness and Christianity but rarely actually put it into PRACTICE. I am glad your laptop was recovered so quickly and I hope Urson does remember to pay it forward when fate comes calling, and we know it will. I’m sure your good Karma will come back to you.

    Manny, happy it worked out for you and you could forgive. A few months before I met your at Stanford this year, I was violently blindsided and mugged by two attackers simultaneously outside a coffee shop. Left guy got my laptop: right guy dug smartphone out of a zippered pocket of my cargo pants. I’ve spent entire year recovering from knee injury, cost in time and$$ for 20 physical therapy sessions and the long-awaited family vacation to Europe that I was forced to do in a wheelchair…everyday I’m reminded of some content lost since I only backed up my laptop monthly. There will be no forgiving on my end -they remain evil ghosts of the night and I hope they rot in hell, whoever they were….

    Graciela, I completely understand how you feel and I don’t blame you one bit for feeling like that. You were robbed and physically hurt, which I wasn’t. Every time I’ve been robbed – less than a month ago someone stole my identity and opened several credit cards in my name – I’ve felt violated. The only thing I can say is that if you’re wronged and you “live” in that anger, you become a prisoner to it. I’ve had to get out of that prison several times before and I know it’s hard. Some of these prisons have taken me longer than others but God has helped me out. I’ve needed to do that even when other people have not done as Urson did and asked for forgiveness.
