In the USA, there have been very unpleasant scenes in recent days, and negativity about law enforcement. Officer Brittany Beard Hilton, posted a photo on her Facebook, which went viral, with over 100,000 shares.
Everyone would say this is just plain photography, officer Brittany with his colleague, but it’s not what it looks like. The policeman next to her is actually her husband, with whom she has 4 daughters. The photo was taken on Thanksgiving when they were supposed to be home with the children, but they still went out to protect the people on the street.
Like many other police officers she encountered a mountain of horrible comments, but she did not continue to spread hate, instead, she kept praying for them. Her husband Steven understands people’s comments because many of them had bad experiences with the police. Many in the second case provided support to this family.
When Brittany was only 3 years old, her mother was sadly killed. As she grew up without her, a need arose in her to help others, and that is why she became a police officer.
1. Here is that photo that caught the attention of many.
“All you may see in this photo is two smiling police officers. But there is more. We are husband and wife, parents to four beautiful girls, we are a son and a daughter, a brother and sister, a grandson and granddaughter, a Niece and nephew. (Steven is also an army veteran). We are friends to many.” – Officer Brittany said.
