J. Sirois: Act of kindness witnessed

On Christmas Eve, a young couple came in to the Lisbon Street Mobil station to buy gas to get to their relatives' house for the holiday. All they had was a handful of change and they didn't know if they could make it.

A Lewiston police officer happened to be at the register buying something and he saw what was happening. He then took out his wallet and handed the young couple $20 to put some gas in their car.

That was a gift that brought families together.

The police officer did not want to be identified; however, I felt his kindness deserved notice.

The Lewiston Police Department has a great bunch of guys and that is just an example of what they do.

I thank that officer for his kindness.

Jeff Sirois, Lewiston
