This Indiana Police Officer totally gets the meaning of the word compassion. How he helps this child having a rough time makes me want to wrap my arms around both of them.
Here's his story:
I can totally relate. I have bad days.
Days where I just want to cry on someone's shoulder while they hug me and and tell me everything's going to be okay.
This policeman is a gem. It takes a special person to get through to a kid who "loses it" and bring them comfort.
Officer, you are my hero!!
Your Turn . . .
What did you think of this story? Was there ever a time in your life where someone when "above and beyond"?
What a blessed man and boy! It would be wonderful if we ALL did that!!
Bravo officer, if only there were police, just people in general could have this man’s compassion and empathy what the world could be.
My heart swells with pride for that officer. He showed not only real kindness but empathy, which unfortunately is often missing. Bless his heart. I’m certain that young man will never forget that moment or the officer.
