My son-in-law is a police officer and people might be surprised to know that there are policemen and women here in Denver do large and small acts of kindness every day.
From picking up a homeless alcoholic wandering across a busy street and taking him to safety.
Attending a funeral for a young addict who has no family and no one to grieve.
Taking a gift card (paid for out of his own pocket) to a young couple he has seen living week to week with their infant in a motel, so they can get a hot meal.
Getting a bicycle from the police dump, fixing it up and giving it to a child in the projects.
My son-in-law has done all the above and more and never asks for or gets recognition for it. He puts his life on the line every day for citizens but is quiet about his acts of humanity.
We should thank our officers, just like we thank our service men and women, whenever we get the opportunity.
