Construction workers usually seem tough and always serious in going about their work day in and day out.
This video shared by Tabooya, however showed their soft side.
“These Steelworkers have been working hard on this building across the street from a Children’s Hospital. One day, they noticed someone watching them from one of the many windows of the hospital –a little girl with cancer, a smiling and waving at them… every morning, without fail. So every day, the workers looked forward to their morning wave with the sick little girl and decided to show her exactly how much they care and hope for her recovery. What they did left her parents overwhelmed with joy. “

“For Vivian Keith, a 2 and a half year old girl suffering from leukemia, watching people through a window was a rare glimpse of the world with no masks and latex gloves. She and her mom would wave at the workers until at least one of them waved back. But one morning, instead of a wave they saw a sign, a simple construction workers’ gesture that made one sick little girl’s day.”
