Injured Officer Receives Something Unexpected

While on duty, at the end of September, Officer Anthony Nolan of New London, Connecticut lost his balance and hurt his knee. While recovering, he came home one day to find a note from a 9-year-old he's known for the past two years.

The child wrote, “My mom sayss your hurt. Im sad because you cant read to me." The boy and his sister also included artwork that depicted a police car and flowers -- and some money for coffee. Nolan met the boy when he and his friend were upset because their book had gotten wet.

Nolan told WFSB, “I told them I got a book that was similar to the one they have [but] didn’t know what kind of book it was. It ended up about being about not having parents -- one of those 'gulp' moments.”

The letter went on “I don’t have a dad, only you read to me.” Nolan said, “They let me know what it means to them not to see me, which made me feel a lot better. It was like one of those healing moments: Even though you’re sick, you feel healed.”

According to a Facebook page devoted to Nolan’s campaign for city council, he has served as a school resource officer for elementary, middle and high school students and worked with several youth organizations. Nolan added, “Kids make us feel just as wonderful as we’re supposed to make them feel."
