On a call this morning down at Courthouse Pier and this little girl walks up to me. She was about 3/4 holding a teddy bear. I heard her mother tell the little girl to tell me. I turned and asked what I could do for her and she hands me her bear. I tried to give it back but she refused. She looked up at me and said it was to keep me safe. I said thank you while trying to keep my voice from cracking. I put the bear on my passenger seat for her to see. Her mother told me that they have a LEO in the family and she always heard everyone tell him to be safe. What a way to make the day better. I did not get her name but she said they were from Texas.
'Tis the season for giving!

My new buddy has my six.
McConnell has a guardian bear to protect him, and the memory of the little girl's kindness to treasure forever.
