“The night before, as I was searching for somewhere to eat I was driving. I saw an elderly lady on Route 10 (I-10), traveling alone, while I was driving to Florida. I noticed that she was speeding all over her lane and was at one point dangerously close to colliding with a truck parked next to her. When they honked their horn, she moved cautiously over to the opposite lane.
So I pulled her over to see how she was doing. She told me she was headed towards Pensacola after I pulled her over. I asked her where she was from and she answered San Antonio. I understood that to be a sign that she was heading towards Pensacola. She assured me she was well and would make it to P’cola.
I warned her that she couldn’t continue driving that way and asked her about her last meal. She mentioned that it was close to lunch so I took her to Waffle House on DIP. While I sat in my car, I waited for her finish her meal in a parking lot.
She reached out to me and offered me money. I declined because it was part my job to protect and assist others. She asked me if I would like a hug and I replied yes. This story shows that we all would benefit if we looked after each other’s well-being.
It seems that I don’t need to be employed in a large police force to assist those in need.
I am still passionate about what I do! !”
