Angels around us

Sorry, I published this earlier today, then edited it and forgot to republish... so here it sits.  GRRR.

Have you seen this photo?  It's gone viral (that means shared/spreading rapidly) on Facebook and other places on the internet.

Jennifer Foster, of Florence, Arizona, snapped the photo while visiting New York City earlier this month when she saw a man without shoes asking for change near Times Square.

"Right when I was about to approach," Foster recalls, "one of [the NYPD] officers came up behind him. The officer said, 'I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let's put them on and take care of you.' The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man."

What a touching story!  We so often see the media portray police in a negative light. This story is a welcomed example of what we ALL should be doing for those in need.

The officer in this photo is Lawrence DePrimo. If the photo and story keeps being shared on Facebook, there will soon be millions of people wanting to give me an "atta-boy" for his selfless act of kindness.

"Angels are everywhere," wrote Helen Hoglund, adding her comment to the posting. "We just have to see!!"
