This 'Good People' blog was inspired by a news story I saw on Friday night. My grandma and I were having dinner and the ABC nightly news was on. The TV was mostly background noise as we were talking and eating our dinner. But if you know my grandma, you know that bathroom breaks are frequent. So she rolled down the hall and I started to watch the TV. It was the end of the news cast and they always have the Person of the Week which I love to see. This particular story had immediately caught my attention because the persons of interest were children with cancer. The story is about Ironworkers who are building a new cancer institute next to the currents institute, called Dana-Farber. The kids enjoy watching them work. One day the kids started making signs that said "hi" and were also putting up signs with their names on them. Since then, the ironworkers have spray painted the kids' names on the beams in fluorescent colors. The story is very touching!

I am a sucker for these types of stories and I would have to say that stuff like this is definitely one of my FAVORITE things! :)
