HEBER CITY, Utah – An act of kindness toward a police officer in Utah is getting positive attention online after the Heber City Police Department posted a photo of a woman who gave an officer a card and a rose at a convenience store and told him it was part of her effort to remember emergency responders who died on 9/11.

Sgt. Segura was buying a drink at a 7-Eleven when a woman from Santaquin approached and gave him a rose and a thank you card.

According to the post from Heber City PD made Thursday, the card reads: “”Here is ‘a single rose for those who serve’ to show my gratitude for your hard work & dedication. Thank you for suiting up & showing up, for putting your lives on the line to save ours! Thank you! always,” JASI LONG”

The woman told Segura she began handing out roses and thank you cards on September 11 and her goal was to give away a rose each day to a police officer or firefighter for the next 30 days as a way to remember police officers and firefighters who died on September 11.
