It was just another day for Kendra Powell, when she noticed a Georgia State Trooper squad car on the side of the road on her way to work. She grew curious because the trunk of the car was popped opened, but there was no one in sight.
Kendra slowly approached the car to see if things were okay. That’s when she noticed the officer was bent over, cleaning his windows. What happened next made Kendra’s day, she decided to share it on Facebook:
“So, on the way to work this morning, I noticed a State Trooper on the side of the road with his trunk up. I felt compelled to stop and make sure he was okay. I never saw him, just the car.
So, I creeped past at a snail’s pace and turned around.
I pulled up to the car and cracked my window, hands clearly visible. I saw a white trooper come from the side of the car.
I said good morning and asked if he was okay and needed help. He smiled a brilliant smile and replied, ‘No ma’am,’ [and] that he was cleaning his windows. He showed the bottle and towels to me and I told him he had the good stuff.
He chuckled and asked if I minded if he cleaned mine too. I told him I was OK but he insisted. Highlight of my day…. [a] state trooper cleaning my windows with the good Rain-X cleaner. Every passerby had a stunned expression on their faces.”
“Then an elderly white couple stopped by and asked if they could have theirs done also. Lol, so he cleaned theirs too. The lady offered to pay him and he said no, just say a prayer for me…. so we did.
Right along [Interstate] 46, in the wee hours of the morning, parked beside the road for EVERYONE to see, we all linked hands and had prayer.
White hands, black hands, officer hands, young hands, and old hands…. gave glory like never before. I was late for work lol but it was truly worth it. Couldn’t ask for a better way to start my day.”
This story goes to show that doing something nice for someone goes a long way. What a great way to start the morning, with an act of kindness and a prayer among strangers.
