Two dozen teens are working beneath the pines in Miccosukee today to build a wheelchair ramp for a 91 year old woman.

The girls are participating in the Leon County Sheriff's Office adventure camp.

The homeowner's son says the 91 year old is in the hospital and anxious to come home.

The teens are measuring and hammering alongside organizers and volunteers from Ability First.

    This is the kind of thing I like to hear about. There is hope for humanity. Now only if people would do this all year ago. Maybe we just hear about. Strictly a joke: That must have been a huge wheelchair ramp for 24 teens to be needed to help build it.
