This particular story is extremely inspiring because it's the little things that change the world.

50 years ago, a California man and his 9-year-old daughter were visiting the city of Portland, according to WGME.

They were touring the city, walking the streets and probably going to a sock hop, drinking milk shakes, since it was the 60s.

His daughter noticed that their were loose bricks on the street. It's assumed that because she had loved her visit so much with her father that she asked him if she could take the brick home with her as a souvenir.

I am also very sentimental. I once stole a rock from the house I grew up in because I wanted to always remember it. I am publicly apologizing to the owners of that property now because of this particular story. I am sorry for stealing the rock.

Absolving sins can be as simple as returning a stolen item or apologizing to someone you've hurt. No matter how much time passes, mistakes you've made stick with you. Speaking of bricks, their like a brick on your conscience, weighing you down.

Once you free yourself of those past indiscretions, it's as if that brick lifts and you feel better. Living in the truth, however easy it may seem, sometimes is not. The hard road is the road of truth and goodness and I am happy that people like this man still exist as an example for all of us to live as honest as we can.

This is a lesson in pride because our pride and hubris can get in the way of doing the right thing. Freeing yourself of that natural vanity is an amazing feeling.
