Emma wrote a heart touching letter to an officer who responded to the violent siege in the U.S. Capitol. She saw Daniel Hodges being crushed against a metal door frame inside the Capitol building and was so touched.
"Dear Officer, I'm Emma and I'm 10 years old. I hope you heal from being crushed. I feel bad for you. Those people are really bad hurting you. I hope you and your family are nice and healthy. When I saw the video on CNN about people crushing you with a door, I almost cried. Get well."
The rioting happened on the afternoon of Jan. 6 after supporters of President Donald Trump made their way up the Capitol steps pushing through barricades, officers in riot gear and other security measures that were put in place in anticipation of the moment. Due to this, at least five people were killed.

Hodges, 32, was injured but got better with time and the letter which was uploaded by Emma's mother went viral too and reached the Metropolitan Police Department who responded to the little girl's letter too.
Emma then got a chance to have a Zoom meeting with Hodges and he told Emma he is now better and waiting to get back to his duty.
