Touching videos

Once in a while one comes across a video that touches something in your heart, or "speaks to you" or resonates with you because it reminds you of something/events/someone important to you. I'm retired law enforcement and worked a lot of holidays, including Christmas and Christmas Eves. So this one does resonate, as I've seen stuff like this, and once in a while, had a hand in it.

That was wonderful, thank you. Karma or something like that?

Very nice, and a fantastic delivery.

I get the impression this is a true story, but wasn't able to verify it.
