FLORENCE, Ala. – A woman from Florence captured a moment between a young woman and an officer who is warming the heart of the Internet.
A Facebook post, shared by Mary Tice, went viral over the weekend. The photo shows a Florence police officer delivering what appears to be a backpack to a girl.
Tice, who shared the photo, said that a tense situation occurred in T.J. Maxx but was quickly deactivated by the officer in the photo. He goes on to say that the officer did not stop just to calm the girl, but then let her choose a backpack and buy it.
"I do not know everything that happened today, I do not mind knowing, but I do know that a little girl was shown the love and kindness that a stranger in uniform deserves and who will probably remember him for the rest of his life," Tice said.
