This was one of the most touching videos I’ve seen on the web in a while.

A county jail in Richmond, Virginia held their annual father daughter dance to help little girls spend time with their dad even though they’re incarcerated. Angela Patton, founder of Camp Divas a non profit organization which focuses on empowering young girls, convinced Richmond City Sheriff C.T Woody Jr. in 2012 to hold the dance after hearing concerns from young girls about their fathers being in jail.

The inmates admit to making poor choices and are aware that it affects the children too. The men wore suits and ties while the girls were all dolled up in beautiful dresses. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room and although the dance only lasted about 2 hours, everyone was extremely thankful for the time to bond with each other. This event made it possible for the child and parent to interact and embrace each other from beyond the glass.

Sheriff Woody said “They are not hard core criminals, they deserve a second chance,” “And they can be very good citizens and the best way to make a good citizen is to make good fathers.”
