Life as an Extreme Sport

small things that bring faith in humanity

I mentioned a bit back about David Cook (current American Idol contestant) wearing an orange bracelet in support of a seven year fan who has leukemia. I noticed this last week, and simply haven’t gotten around to mentioning it now: he’s continued to wear the bracelet at media events and on American Idol, but as far as anyone can tell, he hasn’t used it once, or mentioned it in order to gain attention or votes.

A serious class act, and the sort of gesture that, as stupid as it sounds, on days (weeks) like today, is the sort of positive affirmation that not every human being sucks that is nice to have.
