Normally, a police officer spends most of their time trying to lock up bad guys and serving their communities. However, a group of Maryland cops recently spent some extra time as interior decorators after meeting a little girl without a room of her own.
Eight-year-old Harmonie McKiver recently moved in with her grandparents and unfortunately met a group of police officers from the Anne Arundel County police when her grandma passed away. “I found my wife dead in the bathroom and my granddaughter was with me,” said George Meiklejohn, Harmonie’s grandfather. “They were trying to revive my wife. They took my granddaughter upstairs. During that time they got to know Harmonie.”
“She brought me into this bedroom, which was her uncle’s bedroom, which had holes in the wall. It wasn’t decorated and she said, ‘My pop-pop is going to make it nice for me so I can live here,’” Sgt. Dianne Venit said. Venit, who is also a mother, got the idea to decorate the bedroom for her as a surprise.
“Another officer and I got out heads together,” Venit said. “He talked to a family from Davidsonville, who donated a substantial amount of money.” Thanks to the generous donation, the officers were able to paint, furnish, and decorate the room for Harmonie and recently got the chance to surprise her with her new room.
And when Harmonie finally saw her new room, she couldn’t contain her excitement. “I really love owls, so I like my covers,” Harmonie said. “I like this blanket for owls… I really do think they’re the nicest officers in the whole wide world.”
