In a world so often besieged by violence and uncertainty, can always use more heroes, more positivity and more random acts of kindness toward others.
Oxnard, Calif., Police Officer Michael Kohr did his part.
Responding to a report of child's stolen bike Monday, Kohr ended up fixing the problem then and there for Nina Sanchez and her daughter Bella.
How did he do that? Read on to find out ...
"On my way to take my daughter Bella on a bike ride, her cherished Minnie Mouse bike that Santa brought her had been stolen, along with our jogging stroller," said Nina.
"To say we were heartbroken is an understatement," Sanchez wrote in a Facebook post that has gone viral, based on what happened afterward.
"Through tears and reassuring hugs I managed to call in a police report. This afternoon I received a call from Officer Kohr that he was on his way with a brand new Princess bike."
The kind policeman not only delivered the new bike but taught the little girl how to ride it, added Sanchez, giving mom and daughter both a thrill.
"I can not fully express how grateful I am," Sanchez wrote.
"He has left such an impression in our hearts, and am thoroughly impressed with his generosity. Thank you so much once again Officer Kohr."
The post has been liked almost half a million times, and the Oxnard Police Department is among those who are extremely proud of Officer Kohr's actions.
"We don't get emails/messages like this directly from community members often," the department wrote in reply to the photo Sanchez posted.
"Thank you, Nina Sanchez for sharing! And, thank you Officer Michael Kohr for taking exceptional service to heart and going above and beyond!"
