Note: Today our police officers nationwide are under merciless attacks on their integrity and literally are living in a life threatening atmosphere in America. Every American must do their part to stop this insanity. The bad ones are always weeded out, however there are many more officers that not only do their job, but go over and beyond to reach out to the public.
I saw these comments on Facebook and felt the generous act of giving his time to be with a little boy that “loves the police” and the actions by Colleyville Officer Patrick Starrett was worth sharing to what I know will be an appreciative audience.

“Today was a great day for me! I got to make a little boys day. I was at one of our elementary schools this morning just keeping an eye over our young future. I was standing where the kids get dropped off by the parents when one of the teachers told me that a little boy in one of the cars in line loves the police. So I asked the teacher if I could help the little boy out of the car and she said yes that would be great he will love that.
When I opened the door for the little boy to exit the car you should have seen the biggest smile on his face. He could not get out of that car fast enough to give me a big warm hug. I walked him to class. I asked the teacher what time the little boy goes to lunch and made it a point to be at his lunch break and sit with him durning his lunch break . I can not express the feeling I got when he again gave me a big warm hug and said thank you!!
The teachers said he will talk for days about this!!!
I know in my line of work I don’t and can’t make everybody happy but I was glade I got to spend time with this little boy for lunch .. He made my day too!!!
This is a picture of him and me when I took him to play on the playground.”
