Today I went to get dinner from Panda Express. When I arrived, I saw a Police Officer in the parking lot conducting a traffic stop. When I ordered my dinner, I asked for a $20 gift card. I then pulled up and parked across from the Officer and waited until I wouldn’t interfere with his work. I then called out to him to alert him without startling him to my presence, and then approached and told him, “I just want to thank you for your service and buy you dinner.” I would like to challenge all clear-thinking people out there to do the same whenever they have the opportunity. Police need to know they are still appreciated by the majority of people in this country. They also need a little something to lift their spirits at a time when they are all being painted with the same broad brush as the tiny number of bad apples in their midst. Don’t wait – do it today!
A message from Dave.
