At about 7 a.m. on Shabbos morning, my 6 year old child was experiencing a throbbing toothache and was in need of orajel.
I went outside and approached Officer Nate Reyes, who was on duty and patrolling the area at the time, and asked him where there was an open pharmacy walking distance from my location.
Officer Reyes informed me that the closest pharmacy was over a mile away. So, without hesitation, the Officer asked where we were residing for the weekend, and immediately offered to purchase the medicine and deliver it.
Sure enough, within a few minutes, he showed up at the door with the medication. Immediately, the child felt relief and was thrilled with the knowledge that a real police officer brought it just for him.
We would like to outwardly express our appreciation for the tremendous compassion and sensitivity Officer Reyes demonstrated towards us.
