With all of the negative news stories clogging up our Facebook feeds on a regular basis, it can be difficult to find even a glimmer of hope as we go about our daily routine.

That’s why it’s so important to seek out those individuals who dedicate themselves to bringing out the best in life. It can be as simple as a friendly smile from your neighbor, or someone who goes above and beyond like the gentleman below.

Officer Tommy Norman serves the community of Little Rock, AR, but he uses far more than his badge to make a difference. When Officer Norman’s out on patrol, he not only answers the call for those in distress, he also takes the time to really connect with the citizens he’s protecting. You can often find his car parked near a group of kids playing games as he joins in on all their fun!

Rather than fearing him and his uniform, the young residents smile and cheer when they see him come by.

Officer Norman also spends time with the elderly and those with special needs in his town, making sure everyone knows they have him on their side. His approach to his job is based on a belief that in order to fully serve the public, he first has to earn their trust. The friendly officer never passes an opportunity to spread love and kindness to those in his area. It’s an inspiring way of life that more of us could stand to adopt in our own towns, too.

Take a look to hear more from Officer Norman, and be sure to SHARE his positive message with your loved ones!
