Here’s Prince Hot Ginge hugging 4-year-old Carson Hartley, who suffers from a heart condition and chronic lung disease, at the WellChild Awards in London today. Carson’s mom Kirsty Hartley told the press after this picture was taken that her son was so excited that he nearly embedded his hand print into PHG’s face:
“We were worried he was going to high-five Prince Harry in the face he was so excited. Harry got down on his knees and had a big smile on his face while he was chatting to Carson, he couldn’t believe how active he was despite all the conditions he has. He said he thought he was inspirational for still being so happy, but he also said that parents must be recognized too for how hard they work, which was really nice to hear.”
I would write more about this, but I need to go lie down, because while looking at that picture of PHG hugging a sick child, the pile of dead maggots I call a heart started to feel things and I’m not used to that.
