News spread fast across the Internet and a picture taken just a few days ago is already going viral. The picture shows a police officer embracing a kid, but the story behind the image is what made people hit that share button. Apparently, the police officer was on horse patrol when the little boy saw him and asked if he could give him a hug. Without thinking twice, the kindhearted police officer got down from his horse and was pleased to respond to the boy’s strange request. We’re not sure what were the boy’s reasons (maybe he just needed a hug), but we’re happy the police officer responded the way he did.
