“I am sorry for my decision.”
A child who took a pine cone from a national park returned it to the rangers with a sweet note detailing how sorry they were for taking it.
Staff at the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in California shared the photo from the young visitor on Facebook, where it has since been shared over 1,000 times.
To whom it may concern:
I took a pine cone out of the forest and I wanted to return it. I hope it will be placed near the General Grant tree because that is where I took it. I am sorry for my decision. Thank you.
Staff said they much appreciated the gesture because it is very important not to take home things from the park.
