These kiddos have faces that sing like the call of morning.  And they have cancer.  Wow.

How is it that I’ve been trying to get back on track all day, forcing my way out of a debilitating headache and a subsequently funky mood.

Then I stumbled upon this.

One look at these children—and of the people who care for them—was like a snap of the proverbial finger to come back. (And a great reminder that there is, and always will be, eventually, a snap to bring me back. Thank you.)

The patients and staff members of Unit 5 at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital show how brave they are in the universal language of song and dance.
