So I’m up late (It’s just about midnight as I write this) and I go over to Mashable and do a quick scan to see that Stan Lee took to YouTube to comfort a kid who got hurt in a shooting incident. Watch the video below. I know that it’s not a cure for cancer, but to take a line from The Dark Knight Rises (sorry, I know it’s owned by another company, Mr. Lee):
A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.
The little things, the ones that let you know the people you admire for what they did to gain some level of celebrity, can really make you happier. More hopeful.
Bravo, Stan Lee.
I’m delaying the publishing of this just in hopes it gets to someone’s inbox in time to make their morning better. Enjoy. Nice to see there’s still human sympathy out there in this world.
