What would you do?

On one of our trips to WDW I was walking along and noticed a large pile of money on the ground so I picked it up and looked around for the owner then counted it and it was $65 mostly in $1's. No one claimed it or said anything so I walked along looking at people when I noticed a couple with 2 little girls and they were all upset and speaking in Spanish so I don't know what they were saying. I walked up to them and asked if they were ok and had they lost something? The lady said yes they had lost all the money they had saved and saved for this special day at WDW and now they wouldn't be able to eat or buy drinks or anything. I asked how much and she told me EXACTLY how much so I gave them the money. They were very thankful and couldn't believe that I would give them their money back and called me a good samaritan.
I was tellling a person I know about this today and she said, "I would have kept the money and not thought twice about should have too" this really made me sad because I have known her for years and went to church with her for years. Why wouldn't I give the money to the lady??? I know how I would feel if I had lost money and I also believe that God blesses those that are kind and honest and this is supposed to be one of the "happiest places on earth" but it would have been so sad for that family to not be able to eat. Leave me a comment and let me know what you would have done.
