FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump last week.
While the media swarmed his house and was largely ignored, one 9-year-old girl named Abby Grace was granted permission to give Comey some freshly baked cookies.
According to Abby’s mother, her daughter wanted to cheer Comey up after she learned about what had happened to him.
“FBI Director Comey lives in our neighborhood, and, as you would imagine – there were a lot of reporters at the foot of his driveway today,” she wrote.
“Abby thought that was quite inhospitable. Well – either a 9 year old in a parochial school uniform dress doesn’t look very threatening- or the smell of the choc chip cookies was so good that the security detail could smell them from the other side of the gate …. in either case, Abby Grace just hand delivered a dozen cookies fresh from the oven,” the mother continued.
“She walked up, shook the hand of the 6’10” agent, introduced herself, and, hopefully made Director Comey’s day a little bit better!”
Abby’s mother was pleased with her daughter’s gesture, saying that it was an important lesson in kindness.
“We’ve spent a lot of time talking about how kindness and empathy are the most important ways for us to engage [with] people regardless of if we agree with or understand their positions,” she told her friend.
“In [Director] Comey’s case, Abby said ‘I wanted him to know we respect him for his career of service.’”
What a kind little girl. Love or hate Comey, the girl’s deed was extremely sweet and must have made his day.
