This Policeman's Amazing Act of Kindness Will Truly Make Your Day!
When policeman Gaetano Acerra responded to a domestic dispute in Sumter, South Carolina, he not only went beyond the call of duty, he completely changed this young teenager's life.
After hearing about the tough situation at his home from 13-year-old Cameron Simmons, the youth who had made the distress call, this officer decided he wanted to do the right thing and truly help this boy get what he needed in order to make his life better. What he did was such a game-changer for this teenager, it is so awesome that it is almost hard to believe.
Responding to a call about a family dispute, Officer Acerra found Cameron Simmons who said that he didn't want to live with his mother any more.
It turns our that the youth had been sleeping in a bare room on an inflatable mattress that would deflate at night, leaving Cameron with a sore back in the morning.
The officer reminded the teenager that although it was tough at home, he had it good because there was a roof over his head. He also told the youth that he would do his best to try and help him out...
After speaking with Cameron and seeing his bare room that had almost nothing in it, not even a real bed, this policeman just decided to do the right thing. The officer recalled the first meeeting between them and remarked: "My heart went out for him and I thought that with the little things that he needed, I could give him to make him a happier kid."
About 4 weeks after reponding to the call, policeman Gaetano Acerra again showed up at the family's home, this time with some amazing gifts to help make this teenagers life a little bit easier.
He got Cameron a new queen's size bed to sleep on.
He purchased the teenager a brand new TV set.
He brought Cameron his very own Wii as well a selection of games that someone had donated.
According to the officer, it is the beginning of a real friendship between the two. "I didn't do this to get people to notice me... I did it because I could and because it was the right thing to do..."
One thing is for sure, he definitely brought a glimmer of hope to this young teenager's life. "I put a smile on this kid's face, and a friendship. And I think that's well worth it..."
