Video surveillance footage out of Massachusetts showed how a little girl became an instant star when she saw a policeman sitting by himself at a restaurant.
She decided to sit with him so he wouldn’t have to eat alone.
The incident happened on March 4 at a Panera Bread in Hingham, Massachusetts, when 4-year-old Lilian approached Hingham police Sgt. Steven Dearth.
ABC reported that the Hingham Police Department acquired the video from the restaurant, and it showed the two having a nice chat while the officer ate his meal.
On its Facebook page, the department noted that it means a lot to police officers when people stop to say hello, and it’s especially nice when children interact with them.
“Four year old Lillian came up to Sgt. Steven Dearth tonight to say hi and wanted to sit with him for dinner break. Of course, we gave her a Junior Police Officer sticker and had the best dinner date. She even asked to have a play date ‘in a few days,’” the post said.
The two also posed for a photograph after the meal.
Dearth told ABC that the little girl was dining at the restaurant with her parents and younger brother. After their meal, the officer showed Lilian and her father the police cruiser parked outside.
With all the hate that there is in the world, and with so much of it directed at law enforcement, it’s good to see such a touching moment being shared between two people.
We hope Lilian’s consideration is catching because it doesn’t get much better than seeing kindness like this shared with the people who risk their lives daily to make our cities and streets safe.
