A powerful video is sweeping through Georgia right now after it surfaced earlier today. The video shows an Atlanta police officer who took her job to a whole new level and was caught praying over a child in the street.
This is video of officer Danielle Ognelodh praying over a child outside of Zone 1 in Bankhead.
Ognelodh said she was on duty when the boy came up to her and asked for prayer.
Someone then took out a cellphone and started recording.
Channel 2’s Audrey Washington spoke with Ognelodh about the moment the young boy approached her.
“We went outside and one of the kids asked for prayer. I sat there with the kids and we all prayed. They told me some things in their life that they were going through and that’s how the video happened,” Ognelodh said.
Ognelodh spoke about how she hopes her pretense in the neighborhood will build a stronger bond between police officers and the children, community. It is such a touching thing to see.
Watch for yourself:
Perhaps this will help be bridge between communities and their police officers, as they begin to realize that officers are just normal people who put on a uniform and work hard to keep people safe.
