If you ever want to know what courage looks like watch this. You will see courage in the faces of these parents, and you will hear it in their voices. This is the story of a young Irish boy called Ben,aged 6 years, who received the Irish Heart Foundations ‘Child of courage’ Award today.
I have written about young Ben here before, but tonight you will see him in all his glory. The Ben his family miss so much. Happy and smiling, which is how anyone who met him will always remember him. Quite literally ‘one in a million’.
Tonight young Ben, ‘child of courage’, we celebrate you. All that you were and all that you achieved in your short life.
