Children of migrant workers from outlying provinces look at themselves in the mirror as they use their hands to form the Olympic Rings after watching the TV live broadcast of the Olympic Games opening ceremony at their quarters August 8, 2008 on the outskirts of Beijing. (Andrew Wong/Getty Images)I can remember watching the Olympics as a kid and feeling this incredible feeling of hope and happiness. I hope that these kids feel that. Heaven knows being a migrant worker in China (or anywhere) can't be easy.

The Olympics have been awesome so far. With all the huge spectacle, I'm absolutely charmed by this photo of children in the outskirts of Beijing from Boston.com. I love the kid on the end who's stretching to make the rings connect.
