You see, her mother, now retired, and her father who was tragically killed while on duty, were both police officers. The saddest part? Mikayla was not given the opportunity to meet her father, as he died before she was born. And for that reason, Mikayla and her mother felt a huge satisfaction for their good deed, which was done in secret. Little did they know that their act of kindness would come straight back to them.
The police officer in question used his detective skills in order to find out who paid for his meal, and went above and beyond to show his gratitude. He met with the young girl, who was given the opportunity to be a special guest at their memorial parade, and he set up a GoFundMe account so that he could help pay towards Mikayla’s education!
What an absolutely stunning act indeed, and we’re sending our deepest gratitude to all of the service men and women who fight for our freedom and protection every single day.
Watch Mikayla’s story in the video below. If you’ve been moved by all the kind gestures, be sure to share it with your family and friends.
