WASHINGTON – It may have started with a 12-year-old boy, the son of a police officer, in Thornton, Colorado, earlier in July, after the tragic police assassinations in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
Alex Herrera got the idea to encourage neighbors in his town to switch out porch lights with blue bulbs letting passing officers know they are appreciated and supported.
“Every day they wake up, they’re risking their lives for a stranger that they don’t even know,” Alex said.
When Alex and his parents stopped by a local home-improvement store, the manager was so impressed with the idea, he donated 24 bulbs to the cause.
