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

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NIV)
