    To My Daughter-by an OK Police Officer

    This was sent to me by Narcodog.

    If we can copy and paste this to an email and send it out we can do our part to help this Oklahoma Police Officer save his child.


    To My Daughter - by an OK. Police Officer


    'TO MY DAUGHTER' (AOL IS TRACKING THIS)
    PLEASE DO
    NOT DELETE

    THIS WILL HIT YOU WHERE IT HURTS!

    *Just for this morning, I am going to step over
    the
    laundry, and pick
    you up and take you to the park to play.

    *Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes
    in the
    sink, and let you
    teach me how to put that puzzle of yours
    together.

    *Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the
    telephone and
    keep the
    computer off, and sit with you in the backyard
    and blow
    bubbles.

    *Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once,
    not even a
    tiny grumble
    when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck
    and I
    will buy you one
    if he comes by.

    *Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about
    what you
    are going to be
    when you grow up, or second guess every decision
    I have
    made where you
    are concerned.

    *Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me
    bake
    cookies, and I
    won't stand over you trying to fix them.

    *Just for this afternoon, I will take us to
    McDonald's
    and buy us both a
    Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

    *Just for this evening, I will hold you in my
    arms and tell
    you a story
    about how you were born and how much I love you.

    *Just for this evening, I will let you splash in
    the tub
    and not get
    angry.

    *Just for this evening, I will let you stay up
    late while
    we sit on the
    porch and count all the stars.

    *Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you
    for
    hours, and miss my
    favorite TV shows.

    *Just for this evening when I run my finger
    through your
    hair as you
    pray, I will simply be grateful that God has
    given me the
    greatest gift
    ever given.

    *I will think about the mothers And fathers who
    are
    searching for their
    missing children, the mothers and fathers who are
    visiting
    their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and
    mothers
    and fathers who are
    in hospital rooms watching their children suffer
    senselessly, and
    screaming inside that they can't handle it
    anymore.

    *And when I kiss! you goo d night I will hold you
    a little
    tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God
    for you,
    and ask Him for
    nothing, except one more day............

    * Hi. I am a 29 year old father. Me and my wife
    have had a
    wonderful
    life together. God blessed us with a child too.

    Our daughter's name is Rachel, and she is 10
    years old.

    Not long ago the doctors detected brain cancer in
    her
    little body.

    There is only one way to save her and that is an
    operation.

    Sadly we don't have the money for the
    operation.

    AOL and Zdnet have agreed to help us. The only
    way they can
    help is
    this:

    If you send this email to other people, AOL will
    track this
    email and
    count how many people get it. Every person that
    opens this
    email and
    sends it to at least 3 people will give us 32c.

    Please help us.

    This is false. In fact, according to Snopes, at the time his name was first attached to this email -- the real Bryan Swim didn't even have a kid!

    See Snopes: Rachel Arlington/Bryan Swim or THIS article.

    The thing I hate about those types of emails is that they take advantage of those who are sincerely willing to help someone who is truly in need of prayer or other assistance.

    The sentiments were great... but I get so tired of something good being screwed up because somebody attaches it to something that's not true... Like the one that's consistently attributed to a non-existent VSP Trooper.

    These things only spead faster and more often today, thanks to the internet. And in some sad cases, they distract aid and efforts from a true story...

    Any time you see *any* email that says Microsoft, AOL, or whoever is "tracking" it - the message is bullshit.

    While it may be bs, the message made me miss my kids even more. I think I have something in my eye. I'll be back.

    I still can't believe cops fall for this crap. Especially after they've been introduced to snopes.com. Yet my mailbox still gets that kind of crap every now and then from co-workers.

    PS- Don't take this as a personal jab- because I still fall for crap like that too every now and then. I include myself in the above statement.
