While many of us drive past police officers, most of our best behavior is natural. Maybe you glance down at your speedometer to make sure you aren’t going over the limit, or check your seat belt to be sure you are buckled in. However, the story of the boy below isn’t one of those cases.
Jaxon Siderius, a 6-year-old, sat in the backseat of his family’s car on a trip to a lake in Montana. He saw a police officer and quickly asked his mom, Anna Wise Siderius to pull the car over.
He told Anna that they could return to pray for him, mom was completely surprised. Because she knew that Jaxon had been affected by negative stories involving the police in the media.
However, Anna did what her son said, while the shy 6-year-old approached the Montana Highway Patrol officer, she recorded that moment.
Jaxon was on a mission, and as the little boy took the officer’s hand in his, then Jaxon asked him to join him in prayer. Incredibly, this story doesn’t end there, she said: “At the end, I heard him say, ‘Please protect the officer and all other officers’ I thought he was brave. Probably more than me.”
Jaxon has shown what an empathetic, kind heart is and it is also an inspiration to show compassion to our law enforcement officers.
