Last Thursday, my daughter went with a group of theater students to Bishop for their One-Act Play competition. The group didn’t get back to Skidmore until just before midnight. I had to drive from Beeville to pick her up, so she sat in front of the junior high building, where the building is well lighted.
I stayed on the phone with her as I drove out there (I know – not the safest way to drive, but I didn’t like her sitting by herself so late), and as we were talking, she told me that a police officer had come into the junior high parking lot. He stopped in front of her and asked her what she was doing, then waited with her until I got there a couple minutes later.
So, to that nameless Bee County Sheriff’s Department officer, I want to say “thank you.” I felt better knowing that she was not alone while she waited. I know that it was only a few minutes of your time, but it means the world to know that you were there protecting my daughter.
A thankful parent,
