  One good deed
Not sure if you've heard about the 2 officers that were killed in the line of duty the last Saturday in March.

While I was out in Charlotte today, I stopped in to one of the numerous Subway sandwich shops around town to have lunch. The person in front of me in line was a Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officer.

Just another normal day. Just another normal lunch.

But when he was getting ready to pay for his meal, the manager of Subway informed him that there would be no charge on this day. I thought that was as nice a gesture as could be made at the time.

While the officer was getting his napkins and drink together, one of the other Subway patrons came up to him, shook his hand, and stated that he and his family had been praying for the CMPD.

The whole scene was a bit emotional, even for me.

These are the guys that protect and serve. That put themselves in harms way. And most of the time they don't get treated with the respect (or paycheck) they deserve.

Even though it was a gray and rainy day in Charlotte, that little bit of human kindness made things a little bit brighter today.
