The local Dollar General store called the officer from Tarrant, Alabama to a shoplifting incident. However, he recognized the woman from previous visits to her home and felt sorry for her. All she stole was a dozen eggs to feed her children. He released her on good behavior with the recommendation that she never do such a thing again. Thank goodness, the store didn't press charges.
The nice thing to come from the incident was that the officer purchased the eggs and handed them to her in the car park outside.
So many people are finding it hard to feed their families these days. It makes you wonder what's gone wrong with society.
But acts of kindness lift us above greed and corruption—one act at a time.
Have you done anything to make another person's life a little easier to take lately?
