Officer Lawrence DePrimo, Christmas Elf

Uh oh, we are coming up on Christmas time again. And capturing the new holiday spirit is Officer Lawrence DePrimo, on patrol in Times Square, helping a homeless man with a pair of boots he bought for him:

Officer Lawrence DePrimo bought new boots for a homeless man he encountered in Times Square.

For some reason, this story makes me think of Where are you Christmas, by Faith Hill.

  1. The dross always floats to the surface, the pure always lays beneath. (Old quote from a long gone steel foundry, that I spent some time in as a youth).

    We too often hear about the dross in the Police, which I hope is a very low percentage.

    In this case we have some pure metal shining through, long may he protect and serve those around him.

    Yours Aye.

  2. Kris: A great American, for sure.
    CP: Glad to hear he is getting the publicity.
    EB: We too often hear the dross. So this is a nice feelgood story. He probably did not expect it.
