This morning I stopped to get a coffee at the Tim Hortons inside the Mobile Gas Station at Lexington and Elmwood. There was a homeless woman and her dog sitting outside. A few minutes later, two Buffalo Police Officers pulled up and came inside.
As I waited for my coffee, I saw that they were buying dog food and dog treats. When they approached the woman, she immediately seemed nervous as if she might be getting in trouble. I don’t think I will ever forget the way her face lit up when the officers handed her the bags and asked to pet her dog.
This was so selfless and brought immediate tears to my eyes. Kindness: it’s an incredible thing.
