I always knew that St. Jude was an amazing organization but meeting the kids and seeing how the hospital works first hand was truly beautiful. It doesn't feel like a regular hospital all dreary and sad. It's a colorful, beautiful, comfortable, fun place to live and the energy is wonderful.
Love is the delightful interval between meeting a beautiful girl and discovering that she looks like a haddock.
Design is so critical it should be on the agenda of every meeting in every single department.
