Me and Logan were struggling like no other and didn't know what to do. Well today in court as I got my paperwork to leave I had an officer stop and tell me to wait for her outside. I proceeded outside for her to tell me to follow her, and we ended up at winndixi grocery store.

After me telling her she didn't have to do it she started telling me her struggle and how she made it through... This world may be jacked up yall but there are still people out there to make a difference. And when my time comes I will pay it forward. 💙 thank you again officer Katrina at Dothan police department."
