Whatever floats your boat!
102-year-old Edie Simms always wanted to be arrested and the St. Louis Police Department helped her achieve her dream when they helped her deliver handmade items to the Five Star Senior Center:
“She was so excited that she can ride in a police car and she said, ‘Do you think you could put those handcuffs on me?'” Michael Howard, executive director of the center, told ABC News today. “A St. Louis County car pulled up next to the police and Edie holds up her hands with the handcuffs on. She’s just a riot.”
The police department enjoyed her enthusiasm:
“These types of events and Ms. Simms help us do that and were more than happy to do these type of things,” says St. John McLaughlin, St. Louis Police Department. “We love it and we get more out of it than the seniors do.”
Friday morning she was dispensing pearls of wisdom and free pairs of socks and scarves in the police station.
“Keep going, don’t ever stop whatever it is you’re doing and spend some time doing community service. Sometimes the person you reach out and touch is the only person that they will talk to in a day,” says Simms.
