Le Claire, Iowa Police Officer Adam Christopher drives it forward!!

On December 21, 2015 Officer Adam Christopher of the Le Claire, Iowa Police Department was dispatched to “check the welfare” of a man laying in a ditch. What he found was a man who was very down on his luck who had been traveling for along way and had a story to tell. Officer Christopher posted that story to his facebook wall with a photograph and an important message to all it read:

“Everyone meet Daniel. A concerned passerby called about him lying in the ditch along Interstate 80 in LeClaire. I found him napping in the field, perfectly fine. He was tearing up telling me his story. He said he has walked for 6 days from Des Moines… heading home ALL THE WAY to Peoria. His girlfriend’s car broke down, so she couldn’t come get him. He said he posted on Facebook for help but no one responded, not even people from his church. I gave him a ride a little further into Illinois, but not before stopping at McDonald’s to get him a burger and soda. He thanked me a million times. I told he all he owed me was a big smile, and this is the outcome. He’s just a normal guy, going through a tough time. I learned a lot from this man, not just that he doesn’t like pickles on his burger, but a huge reminder to never take life for granted.”
