This weekend it was my honor to attend the Kenly Police Department swearing in ceremony for 5-year-old Eric Daniel Grady and present him with a flag that was flown over the Capitol. Eric has muscular dystrophy and, more than anything, he wanted to be a police officer. The Kenly Police Department, and others in his community, helped make his dream come true.
