SO AWESOME: Almost 100 Texas police officers take son of fallen officer to kindergarten on his first day

This is an amazing story, one that might even make you cry if you think about it too much:

CBN NEWS – Police officers from across Texas saw to it that Kevin Will, Jr., did not go to his first day of kindergarten alone.

In 2011, his father, an officer in the Houston Police Department, was killed while on duty.

“I think he was way overwhelmed today,” Kevin’s mother, Alisha Will, told The Houston Chronicle. “But he was excited about kindergarten, and I talked to him about the officers being here because his daddy couldn’t.”

The boy never knew his father, born three months after he was killed.

Standing in for his fallen daddy, nearly 100 officers took the five-year-old boy on his one-mile trek to Wildwood Elementary School in Tomball.

Some officers made the trip on horseback and a helicopter escort followed overhead.

Alisha noted that her son may have lost his father, but he gained a family in his father’s fellow officers

“He knows,” she said, “that they’ll always be there.”

Here’s photos of the officers:

What an amazing group of men, that they would keep their bond with this little boy’s father and do something like this, it’s just so amazing.

And this little boy will remember it for the rest of his life.
