Are you ready for a pure and precious story to make your Thursday better?


In Tallahassee, Florida, a six year old boy called 911 because he was upset and lonely:


He told the 911 dispatcher that he was lonely and wanted a friend.

Officer Joe White from the Tallahassee police department responded to the call.

When he arrived, the boy asked if Joe would be his friend.


After a gentle reminder of "how 911 worked and was [only] for emergencies," Officer White said he would be happy to be the boy's friend.

The boy then got to sit in the police car and received a stuffed animal from the officer.

According to the TPD on Facebook, he "now has a friend at the Tallahassee Police Department!"


The community and several others outside of it are reveling at this cute story.
