If this week is as 2016 as every other week has been so far, we’re probably going to end with another Islamic terror attack, at least one of our Presidential candidates saying something offensively stupid or stupidly offensive, and SJWs finding something problematic about cheese. So why not start the week with a cop and a little girl having a tea party?
A Texas police officer sat down for a “tea party” on Tuesday with a 2-year-old girl whose life he saved one year ago.
Corporal Patrick Ray, 30, saved Bexley when she was choking on a coin at her home in Rowlett, Texas.
“Her lips were completely blue,” her mother, Tammy Norvell, 41, told CNN.
She called 911, and Ray was there within minutes.
“I could not believe how fast he got here,” Norvell said.
He was able to pry Bexley’s mouth open to perform a “finger sweep.” His body camera captured the moment she started breathing again.
“It was the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard in my entire life,” Ray told CNN affiliate KTVT.
He came to check on Bexley in the hospital after doctors determined she swallowed a coin.
“Last time I checked, that was not their job description,” Norvell said.
Let’s everyone take a moment to appreciate how warm and fuzzy your soul feels right now.
Sometimes it takes seeing the world through the eyes of a child to get a little perspective. I’ve no doubt that Twitter will be ablaze with people demanding the tiny tyke check her privilege. She doesn’t have enough melanin in her skin, after all. But sometimes amidst the #BlackLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter political football, we forget that many police officers are just people too. People with families of their own, and people with other families to save.
And sometimes, they just need to take a little tea break.
Ok, now you can start the week…
