Quick question for you—$10,000 worth of weed falls from the sky and lands smack in front of your house. Do you accept the divine gift? Or do you reject the miracle and call the cops—just like Judas, if you don’t think about it too hard.
Maya Donnelly awoke to what sounded like thunder in the early morning hours, but dismissed it as a typical monsoon storm and went back to sleep. Later that morning, she looked in the carport at her home in Nogales, near the US-Mexico border, and saw pieces of wood on the ground.
She found a bulky bundle wrapped in black plastic. Inside was roughly 26lbs of marijuana – a package that authorities say was worth $10,000 and was likely dropped there accidentally by a drug smuggler’s aircraft.
Living near the border, Donnelly said she assumed the object contained drugs. She immediately called her husband, Bill, who told her to call 911.
Why did she call 911???
“That’s what everybody says: ‘Why did you call 911?”’ Maya Donnelly said. “But how can you have a clear conscience, right? We could have made lots of home repairs with that.”
Now their dog’s out a doghouse (it was crushed by the impact), some drug dealers are out some drugs, the Donnelly family is sober as a judge, and the miracle is locked up in an evidence room. All I’m saying is, the Romans would probably be proud.
