LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- This year, as part of a 9/11 project, Lori McKay's 7th grade class at The Anthony School wanted to find a way to commemorate the sacrifices made on that horrific day by doing a good deed.
"In light of everything that's gone on nationally, related to our police department, that it would be nice to do something for our policemen to encourage them and remind them we are thankful for what they do," said McKay.
Dozens of letters were written and sent to the Little Rock Police Department. One student reads, "Thank you so much for serving our community. I know it must be a hard job to have." Another says, "Your job is one of the hardest in America." Another adds, "I know it's been hard lately for police officers."
