Let’s face it, folks: The news can get you down. I just could not this morning. No more. At least not until the java kicks in.

But take heart! If you want your Tuesday to start off with something that won’t make you angry or disgusted or just plain frustrated, have I got something for you…

Meet Abigail Arias, a 7-year-old Texas girl who is fighting cancer. She wants to be a police officer when she grows up, she told Freeport Police Chief Ray Garivey.

“I have cancer. The bad guys are in my lungs.”

She’s now an honorary officer with the Freeport Police Department. She was sworn in on Feb. 7.

Abigail, who has been fighting lung cancer for three years, entered hospice a few days ago.

Here is a video of her as shown on WEAR ABC 3 News, Pensacola this morning, performing one of her duties.
