Being a Hero is hard work. And doing the right thing is sometimes more difficult than it should be, like returning a lost phone, for example. There are many people in the world that see a lost phone as a chance for profit. In 2011 alone, the profit of lost and stolen phones in America added up to be more than 30 billion dollars. That’s right. Think about all those stolen and lost phones, which probably contain personal information like passwords and photos. Criminals might look through your phone for sensitive data before they wipe it. You wouldn’t like it if your phone with all your photos and passwords was seen by some stranger, then sold for profit, would you?

Sure it might seem difficult returning a lost phone but not for Marilu Padilla. Marilu Padilla is a woman who returned three phones to their owners because doesn’t like the feeling of losing something that belongs to her. She returns phones to their owner because she thinks it is the right thing to do. She accomplished this by waiting for the owner to call their phone and then talking to the owner about how to return it to them, Some of the areas where she found lost phones were outside Babies R Us on top of a trash can,iIn a mall, and inside a Target. “I believe that everyone who finds a lost phone should return them to their rightful owners.”

Marilu Padilla is considered tan unassuming hero for doing the right thing, which is returning lost phones to their rightful owners. Stealing sensitive data and selling phones is a big deal, and we should put a stop to it. Everyone should start returning phones instead of using them as if they were ours or selling them for profit. People who find a lost phone have a decision to make, which is to return or sell. The choice is yours, but you should do the right thing like Marilu Padilla did and return the phone to its owner.

    Good article. However it only has three paragraphs when it should have five. You also had a spelling error towards the end of paragraph two, where you said “iln a mall” instead of “in a mall”.

    Good job writing the article. Fix the “iIn a mall” to In a mall.
