Alicia said in her Facebook post that there wasn’t anyone else in the shop, and neither of them did the good deed to get noticed or getting noticed on social media, it was just a genuine act of kindness.
Alicia shared this storey as she really feels that there is too much hating and sadness in the world, mistrust and bad people are rife.
Even small acts of kindness can really start something good and inspire others to do the same too!
“We still have so far to go, but I promise you small acts of kindness like this are what’s going to rebuild trust and faith in our communities. I didn’t get the cop’s name but this didn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated by me or the customer.”
There are sometimes when we see things that will stay with us forever. This is certainly one of them!
