A North Carolina police officer was so moved by a little boy’s warm gesture that he posted a photo of their encounter on Facebook. That post has now gone viral.
Officer Terence Brister, a Marine veteran, recounted on Facebook how a little boy approached him inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Greenville and thanked him.
‘Best Day Ever’
“Today, this beautiful young child approached me at Chick-fil-A and thanked me. I took him to the counter and bought him a cookie. He then had me wait and he gave me a gift card to eat at Chick-fil-A again.
He is the very reason I have served in USMC, State Police And now City Police. The faith, innocence and love of a child is immeasurable.
In a world that’s divided by racial tension, prejudice and discrimination, why can’t adults be more like kids. He didn’t see black or white, he saw only a law enforcement officer and who he called a hero.
I applaud his parents for raising a child who loves everyone. I know that some people hate police, but it’s days like today that God often reminds me of those who love, honor and respect the badge and uniform. This is another *best day ever.” God is always reminding us of his presence.”
Media Demonizes Law Enforcement
The boy’s mother, Cara Bryan, proudly shared Brister’s Facebook post: “Kind words. It was a fun morning getting to meet you. Thanks again Officer Terence Brister for taking time to make my boy smile and proud!”
Sadly, the simple gesture of showing appreciation to police officers for protecting public safety is rare these days in light of the media demonization of law enforcement.
While Democrats rabidly champion violent Antifa protesters who assault police officers and ICE agents, they forget that these are public servants who risk their lives every day to protect Americans.

Democrats murdered Corporal Ronil Singh.
His 5-month-old son will grow up without a father because democrats choose illegal aliens over Americans.
