I hope it's OK to make a separate topic out of this. Maybe I have PMS, but I was sobbing in my corn flakes this morning looking at this. Trent showed us all the power a person has to make a difference for someone else. No matter what our struggles are (and we all have them), there is always an opportunity to do something to help someone else, and this is what our better nature tells us to do. As the young boy's father put it, "There aren’t many times when Louis feels lucky (I.e. when kids are running around playing football,eating for themselves, having a conversation, dressing themselves...) but I bet he feels lucky today."

Nobody would have had any reason to criticize a 19-year old player for just bouncing around the pitch to celebrate the season, but Trent was thinking about somebody else and acted. Inspiring.
Now I'm feeling even happier about yesterday.
