how about the officers injured or murdered during BLM protests...any kids reaching out to them ...idiots I watched this earlier today. It was so inspiring. That young girl will go places!

Sweet 🥰 What a beautiful thing to do. I’m so glad she was-able get her letter to the police officer. This 10 yr old is teaching all how to be the adult in the room! This wouldn't have happened if his fellow officers stood their ground and didn't welcome the terrorists into the building.
