PHOTO: Indiana State Police sergeant comforts boy

INDIANAPOLIS — A student was having a rough day when an Indiana police officer stepped in to help.  The photo of the duo’s encounter is quickly melting hearts everywhere.

According to WTHR, the little boy fell out on the floor during a High Five Rally event at the school on Tuesday.

“I decided to get on his level and talk to him,” posted Indiana State Police Sgt. Precious Comner-Jones. “He started to cry so I wiped his tears and told him it will be ok.”

She went on to encourage others to do the same.

“As an adult sometimes all we want is one person to stop, get on our level and maybe wipe our tears. These children are entitled to bad days just as us, so give them that moment to bring it together. Get on someone’s level today and make them smile!! Spread PEACE and LOVE you might be that person that gives them hope!”
