Her Father Was Killed During The Dallas Shooting - These Were His Last Words To Her

It was the first time and the last time Sgt. Michael Smith had even spoken those words to his daughter.

“He was leaving to go to work, and I was leaving to go to a movie, and he said to me, ‘What if this is the last time you ever kiss me or hug me?’” she recalls of that tragic day.

His hug was different that morning, and Caroline knew it, according to Independent Journal Review.

“It just felt different to me. I thought something bad was gonna happen.”

The 9-year-old’s intuition, unfortunately, was right. Smith was one of the five officers who were killed during the Dallas shooting. She recently spoke to CBS News about her father, and found a bit of joy after connecting with the daughter of one of the other fallen Dallas officers.

Reporter Lauren Zakalik posted a picture on social media of Caroline presenting the young daughter of Officer Patrick Zamarripa with a token of affection to help the girls to realize they’re not alone. She made her a friendship bracelet.
