Respect for for law enforcement, lessons
During World War II in 1944, I was 7 years old and was in a Seattle orphanage through 1946. Twice a year, the staff would invite one or more policeman and organize a meeting that explained to us kids just what a policeman did and was. I remember policemen invited us kids to sit on their laps or gather around them to ask questions.
To this day, I remember being told:
1) To always obey a policeman’s request.
2) If I ever needed help, ask for a policeman’s help.
I am now 83 and for 76 years have followed this advice. I respect and appreciate our policemen and I think these teachings should be taught in our grade schools churches, community centers, etc. Thumbs up to the police.
