Being a cop means that you allow every citizen of your country to be a part of your life. Your life is more on the service side than the enjoying. To many, it is a vocation. It will never be considered a sacrifice for cops, for they consider their jobs a huge privilege. A lot of times, we get to take advantage of them knowing that they will always be there, working and serving the country. But there are still moments when you cannot overlook what they do. Instead, you would be amazed at how these people are simple yet superheroes.
This police officer, on one usual day, saw a very unusual special scenario. Officer Kendra Powell was on her way to her local Walmart to report on her duty there. But as she was on the road, she suddenly saw a Georgia State Trooper squad car stopped at the side of the road. She then went nearer to the car and was surprised the moment she saw the trunk was open. The officer’s mind went from being curious to being worried. Thankfully, the officer was there and he was just wiping his windows. After they gave their customary pleasantries, the other officer offered her something that she will remember for the rest of her life.
She then shared what happened to Love What Matters Facebook page, saying:
“So, on the way to work this morning, I noticed a State Trooper on the side of the road with his trunk up. I felt compelled to stop and make sure he was okay. I never saw him, just the car.
So, I creeped past at a snail’s pace and turned around.
I pulled up to the car and cracked my window, hands clearly visible. I saw a white trooper come from the side of the car.”
“I said good morning and asked if he was okay and needed help. He smiled a brilliant smile and replied, ‘No ma’am,’ [and] that he was cleaning his windows. He showed the bottle and towels to me and I told him he had the good stuff.
He chuckled and asked if I minded if he cleaned mine too. I told him I was OK but he insisted. Highlight of my day…. [a] state trooper cleaning my windows with the good Rain-X cleaner. Every passerby had a stunned expression on their faces.
Then an elderly white couple stopped by and asked if they could have theirs done also. Lol, so he cleaned theirs too. The lady offered to pay him and he said no, just say a prayer for me…. so we did.
Right along [Interstate] 46, in the wee hours of the morning, parked beside the road for EVERYONE to see, we all linked hands and had a prayer.
White hands, black hands, officer hands, young hands, and old hands…. gave glory like never before. I was late for work lol but it was truly worth it. Couldn’t ask for a better way to start my day.”
This is a clear example that our country stands together with each other, as well as with our police officers – and it was all right there on Interstate 46, on display for the world to see!
Truly, there are people who are still willing to give service beyond what is paid and beyond what is seen. We need more of these people!
