I was reading another thread on wether or not being a LEO is a good career, which got me to thinking about something from long ago.
You knew my first name.
You knew where I went to school.
You answered my questions about what is that on your belt, what does that do, what is that for?
You let me sit in the front seat of your car one day and answered many more questions.
You gave my a ride one day when it was raining hard.
You watched over me for many years though I knew it not at the time.
You never let me or any of my friends get hurt crossing the street.
You were always there when the crossing guard was sick or had the day off.
I was never afraid when you were there.
I was always safe.
You gave me a tour of the station during the open house - I still have the .38 bullet, a treasured momento.
You never knew, but you made a difference in my life.
You never know who is watching or the impression you will make on a little guy as a LEO.
To all the LEOs out there you guys are the best. Stay safe and God bless you.

Nicely done, and a good - nay, great reminder of how I grew up. The cops in my rural area in the 50's were just about the nicest guys you'd meet anywhere. I grew up knowing that cops could always be counted on to help me if I was in trouble.

I also have those memories of LEO when I grew up, the interactions were most impressive
thats why I love doing the presentations at schools/churches/etc to the kiddos, and watching their faces light up when the sirens/lights activate, and they get to talk to their teacher through the PA speaker
its the most precious time to make a good impact on our kids at an early age, and we need to take advantage of it every time possible, even if just smiling, waving, saying hi to kids at the store when they see that uniform

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
