Sometimes, the sweetest moments in life are unplanned and totally unexpected.
Police officers risk their lives every day to keep our citizens safe. They put everything on the line so we can go about our daily lives without worry or concern.
And unfortunately, these brave heroes never seem to get enough credit.
That’s why it’s especially nice to see a younger generation paying them the proper respect; perhaps some decades from now, we’ll once again live in a society where the majority of individuals respect authority.
This adorable 8-year-old girl certainly does. Somebody raised her the right way, that’s for damn sure.
As spotted on Facebook, little Paige took it upon herself to do something absolutely incredible: When she saw 8 officers having dinner, she walked over and asked to lead them in a prayer.
The mother shared the heartwarming event:
“… ‘may I pray for you to be safe , & so that God may take care of y’all?’ I must say that every one of them Bowed their head When they got done eating one officer walked over to our table to say thank you.”
The best part?
The officers were still mourning the loss of a fallen comrade who was killed in the line of duty the previous month.
Paige couldn’t possibly have known this and yet, her timing couldn’t have been better, nor could her act of kindness been more appreciated by the boys in blue.
Perhaps God had a hand in this; maybe he delivered a message through an adorable angel and this time, everyone is going to hear it. It is indeed going bonkers on the internet right now, and for good reason.
Here’s hoping we see more good vibes from youngsters, and we will ALWAYS pray for the safety of our brave police officers!
