A heartwarming story from Chicago…that reminds us all that each one of us has a tremendous potential to make a positive difference in the life of another person, or in our community.

The Chicago police department held it’s first ever “Daddy Daughter Dance” to give fathers a special night to spend with their daughters. The girls who did not have a father to attend with them, were not left out… they received a special escort as a commander, sergeant or officer volunteered to take them to the dance.

The “Daddy Daughter Dance” was a free event held at the South Shore Cultural Center that included a dance and refreshments. It was a fun night for all.

Thank you to the Chicago police districts 5, 7, and 9, and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, who planned the dance.
