Per Kearly's comments:
It's true that tomorrow isn't a guarantee for any of us. I've lost a child and it still hurts. I have known many people who have endured the death of a child and that changes one's life. It's not that children's lives are more valuable than that of adults. Certain death... is a certainty for all of us. I don't think the clip meant to indicate that kids are more valuable, but I can see that being an assumption and not faulting Kearly there. Still, that kid probably can forget what he's dealing with for those moments a lot easier than an adult could. So, I think the clip says something about what is good and right about caring about others... regardless of age. It's great to see the hearts and compassion of the players who are willing to do something to give that kid a moment. I actually grew up in and out of a hospital myself. Never had anything like that... in fact, I was sometimes even ridiculed for something I couldn't control. So, I'd much rather see humans behaving like this rather than the other way around towards fellow man. But, I digress. I'm sure the deed was also for the parents and family as much as it was for the kid. Others care about him and it's a good thing for a coaching staff and university to exhibit kindness above the call of duty in considering others. That's impressive. There's other meaning that could be unpacked in regards to "triumph" exhibited in that clip. But, I've probably said enough.
