Police Officer Shows Off Dance Moves at Hospital in Viral Video

Joy is absolutely contiguous. If you’re still on the fence about that idea, watch as this police officer shows off dance moves at a hospital in this viral video. 

Officer Corporal Eric Hudson decided to volunteer as a street monitor because he wanted to inspire others and he wanted to change the views of police officers. Instead of handing out tickets, he is handing out heaping doses of joy. And he offers this amazing gift at a place where people could definitely use a pick-me-up – the hospital.

You can’t help but smile as you cross the street to the Cleveland hospital as Eric greets staff, patients, and complete strangers with a hearty good morning and a fancy two-step. He is now known as the “dancing crossing guard.” In return, this beautiful ray of sunshine receives a little joy too. 

He said, “People come talk to me and say, ‘’Thank you, I needed this.’” To see caregivers walking into work, energetic, it’s nothing like it.” 

While he is directing traffic, he plays music on a speaker and greets everyone with a big grin and dance. In just a few weeks' time, Corporal Eric has gone viral, and it’s no surprise because joy is a gift that just keeps on giving. 

Can you imagine what the world would be like if we all attempted to spread joy? From dentists to grocery clerks, the world would be such a bright place. It reminds me of how Jesus reminds us to spread joy. 

It’s nearly as vital as breathing. God wants every one of his children to be joy-filled. We can take a few tips from Corporal Eric to give and spread joy–even if we don’t feel like it. Let’s anchor our hearts in the shoreline of God’s deep well of joy. 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope,” Romans 15:13.
