When i get to the office, i go through my email and facebook updates before getting into work. So i clicked on the link and went on with my work work email as i often do with online radio. Very soon i was tearing and i wanted to share this with you. When a 9 year old facing more odds than most showcases such wisdom and ‘joie de vivre’, it is wise to pause for a moment and listen.
