Kids Cancer Tribute

I ran across this on Digg the other day. It's a really cool story about how construction workers putting up a building near the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are paying tribute to the children that are there receiving cancer treatment. Basically, the kids go out into a glass walkway and write their name on a piece of paper. Then they hold it up to the glass and the construction workers spray paint the kids names on the giant beams they are getting ready to lift. It's a simple thing, but it's become such a ritual for the kids getting treatment there. Sounds like the kids get so excited to do this. It has to be helpful to them and their families.

There is a video on the story linked above, and here is a slide show with some pictures and descriptions. There is just so much crap in the world today, that it's really nice to good stories once in a while.
