In a time when we are inundated with stories of violence, especially related to the police force, stories like these are especially inspiring and uplifting.  It’s about Swedish policemen on vacation in New York breaking up a fight on the subway.

They could have easily whistled and looked the other way, reasoning they were on vacation and not even in their own country.  But they embody such a wonderful example of what it means to go beyond the confines of what you are normally expected to do.  Without resulting to violence of any sort, they are able to calm the two men down and even have the decency to ask if either is hurt.  What an incredible example of swift service with heart!  For the full story and a video clip, please visit this link from Upworthy. Go Swedes, go! May we be as brave and kind as you.
