Police officers patrol to help out citizens. Sometimes it's stopping crime, but more often, it's just as simple as being kind to a kid. For one police officer, it was a quick wave back to a little girl named Klynn Scales. One day, something tragic happened, and both Klynn's life and the officer's changed.
1. A Friendly Hello Can Go A Long Way
At 9, young Klynn found her first hero - a local police officer patrolling in her neighborhood every day. She tracked the time he'd pass by her house and would sit by the window waiting. When he passed by, Klynn'd excitedly wave to say hello, and the officer would give a friendly wave back. Every day, the two would exchange greetings, and it brightened their otherwise tough days.
