After a shooting at a peaceful protest killed five police officers last night, thousands of people packed Thanks-Giving Square Park in Dallas for an interfaith prayer service on Friday.
When the public service concluded, some Dallas residents weren't done showing their gratitude to the police.
A video captured by Atlanta Buzz showed dozens of people lining up to hug a group of police officers after the service.
The nearly 11-minute video featured a diverse group of people offering their condolences to the cops and thanking them for their service. There were even a few tears shed.
"I appreciate you," a woman in the video said while hugging a cop. "I appreciate what you do for this city. And I appreciate the sacrifice that you make each and every day. And I'm so glad that you guys are here."
"It means a lot to us," an officer said in the video. "It's heartwarming. And we need to work as a community. We need this right now."
The video has received more than 24 million views over the past day.
