    I think we all need this. I saw this on Toronto News last night as their Big Picture of the day and was going to look over at YouTube for it last night, but then the horror and tragedy in West, Texas happened and...

    Good on these guys doing this and giving these kids a moment that'll lift them up and will always remember....

    'Superheroes' surprise kids at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh

    The guy who was dressed as Superman was asked in the piece I saw last night, why they did this. He told the reporter if she had seen the look on the face of a little guy in the one room he was at, who was on a respirator and then had the biggest grin on his face, she would not have had to ask why they did this.

    As I said, Good on Them and I just think we all need a boost like this after the last few days. :)
    Gypsy and (deleted member) like this.

    Thanks for posting this.

    As much as we are inundated with the horrors and disappointments day by day, it's good to be reminded of the good in the world - good that exists all around us, if we are open to recognizing it.

    You're both welcome!!! Also my pleasure, as I said after the last few days and especially after the last close to 24 hrs we've been watching happen, this is a story that certainly gives you a boost of "Yes, there are indeed good people out there." :)
