Police officers in Detroit's 11th Precinct enjoyed a homemade bag lunch recently. Each bag contained a sandwich, some fruit, a cookie and some chips, along with a big serving of heartfelt gratitude from the cook, nine-year-old Samya McLaughlin. "I was thinking that I should feed the officers because I wanted to show them that I support them and I thank them for what they do," she explained.

According to her mother, Samya decided to do something special for the police after watching news coverage of the Dallas shooting, which left five officers dead. So she used her birthday cash to buy food needed for lunches. After feeding the police, she made 30 more bag lunches and which she handed out to the homeless. Samya's father said his daughter has a big heart and knows how to appreciate what's going on."
