Edmond, Oklahoma (KFOR) -- Have you ever felt guilty about something you've done in the past and wished you could go back and make it right?
That's exactly what a former student at a school in Oklahoma did -- and it was over something that happened 56 years ago.
Clegern Elementary School received an anonymous letter that reads in part: "I have recently returned to church after a 25-year absence. One of the many things I asked God's forgiveness for was this: stealing a carton of chocolate milk when I was in grade school there in 1958. I'm the oldest of six children and we didn't have a dime to send with me to school."
Enclosed with the letter was $100, as an exchange for forgiveness for a desperate act of a child all those years ago.
"To have held on to this for all these years, and to pay it back in this way is a lesson to all of us," said Clegern Principal Teri Cowden-Draper.
And it's timely too.
It just so happens the kids are learning more about honesty, trustworthiness and integrity.
The anonymous Clegern alum wants the money to be used for a student or student's family who needs a little financial help or go towards a project important to the students.
Cowden-Draper said the students will decide what to do with the $100.
