Funny 'I Am Sorry for My Decision': This Pinecone Thief's Apology Will Make You Smile
This story will make you smile.
Several days ago, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks received something surprising: a pinecone and an apology note from an unidentified person who took it home from the park.
Apparently, the contrite "pinecone thief" was guilt-ridden and had a change of heart.
The park, which is located in the southern Sierra Nevada mountains in California, posted the heartwarming note to their Facebook page, and it's making people around the country smile.
The text of the hilariously earnest note reads:
To whom it may concern. I took a pinecone out of the forest and I wanted to return it. I hope it will be replaced near the General Grant tree because that is where I took it. I am sorry for my decision. Thank you.
The note was not signed, but the handwriting led the park and others to believe it was written by a child.
"We are so glad this young person thought about the park's preservation messages. Thanks for leaving Sequoia and Kings Canyon Parks as you found them," the park wrote on Facebook. "And, thanks for sending this back, buddy!"
The General Grant tree referenced in the note is the largest giant sequoia in the General Grant Grove section of the park. It is 267 feet tall and was recently estimated to be 1,650 years old.
