Kind Officer Buys Groceries For Diabetic Man After His Food Was Stolen

A police officer’s act of kindness to a diabetic man is being praised. Officer Kirsten Koryciak who had been stationed at a Walmart in Houston, noticed a “groggy-looking” customer returning to the store. The man approached her and told her that someone stole his groceries, while he had a diabetic episode.

As the man was on a fixed income, he cannot afford to buy the food again. Koryciak decided to help him without any hesitation. She bought him groceries of $30 including vegetables, medication, and meals using her own money.

“I just didn’t want to see that young man suffering,” Koryciak said at a press conference. “It’s part of my job to care about people.”

“He wasn’t having a great day. He wasn’t feeling good,” she added. “If you see somebody being mistreated or taken advantage of, say something. You have to treat people like they were your own family… how you want to be treated.”

Verse of the Day

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. — Colossians 4:5-6 (NIV)
