A friend forwarded me this article from the Seattle Times about a little boy who’s wish came true.
Watching her son run across the plaza in front of the Space Needle, mom Judy Martin said Erik goes to school when he’s able, but is often too tired. “He hasn’t had this much energy in a long time,” she said. “They called it the power of the wish, and they’re right.”
Like any good superhero, Electron Boy kept his innermost thoughts to himself. But he did have one important thing to say:
“This is the best day of my life.”
If this many people can come together for one day, for one boy, for one wish, then surely there is hope in this world.
