Loving big...

The world is often a place so full of sad stories and broken people... When we are constantly bombarded by stories of violence and hurt and destruction, it can be easy to forget that not everyone is is hardened to the people around them.  There are still people who love big and who act on that love for others in extravagant ways.

This is one of the most beautiful cases of that sort of love that I've seen in quite a while...

The short version is this:

A 5 year old girl loses her police officer father a couple days before she is to graduate from Kindergarten.  The level of that sort of tragedy is completely unimaginable and, while his fellow officers could do nothing to turn back the clock, they did what they could.

They came to her graduation.

Hundreds of police officers - nearly 300 to be exact -  came to this precious child's kindergarten graduation in the stead of her Father.

They wrapped around the building to wait for her arrival and gave her and her classmates 
standing ovations when they received their diplomas.

They couldn't bring back her father but they could take something awful and do something good... They could love big.

Check out the article if you haven't already...You'll be blessed =)
