You must have heard about the thin blue line. It’s used for law enforcement, being a symbol of bringing peace to chaos. It is also used as an emblem of respect for the policemen who have died performing their duties.
Keeping this in mind, April Killingsworth, manager of the Target Signs, a store that deals in specialization, decided to do something to support the police officers.
She stuck a blue sticker line on her car. Little did she know it’ll become a trend!
Take a look.
This is April Killingsworth.
She pasted Blue strip on the back of her car to show respect to the police.
But she never expected that people will start doing this too.
She posted on the internet that she’ll be giving out stickers to anyone who wanted to do the same. She wasn’t expected any reaction but, she said, “When we first posted it, it was a sporadic thing that morning but,…”
She got a huge reaction to her call. People from across the Texas showed up for the blue strip. She gave more than 1000 strips in just 2 days!
They even got calls from NYPD officers for the same purpose! Everyone wanted to show respect to the police.
She then realized that she had done something really good so she posed about it.
Even the Police started following the trend. The whole idea behind doing this was to tell the criminals that the police isn’t alone. The people have their backs and anyone who tried to harm the police will not be spared.
