A young boy comforts a distraught French fan.  After the encounter, the boy waits for the fan to walk away, out of range, then turns back and starts cheering and waving his Portugal flag again.

Aww! That's one of the best sports moments ever!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."
