WORD OF THE DAY! 12/15/13!

winspirational [win-spuh-rehy-shuh-nuhl]
adjective
1. The inspiration given by fans to the their hero to win.
2. Something that invokes someone to become the fan of a winner.

EX. Miles Scott made headlines back in November. Not because he ruined an award show or started a political scandal. Miles Scott saved San Fransisco and, in the process, Miles and the city of San Fransisco restored the collective faith of millions in humanity. Miles Scott isn't just any kid, after all. Miles Scott is Batkid! And here is his winspirational story...

Miles Scott is only five and, like Batman dealing out justice to the crooks and criminals of Gotham, has put his leukemia into remission. The Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization made-up of heroes that would make the Justice League proud, managed to bring Miles Scott's comic book dream into reality.

Thousands of citizens came out in support of their little champion, buying t-shirts dedicated to his bravery (with the proceeds going to charity), and cheered Batkid on as he foiled a bankrobbery, saved several hostages (including a seal mascot), defeated the Riddler, and ended up not just saving the day, but inspiring the people of this city to never give up.

Batkid's is not just the hero Gotham that deserves, but the one it needs right now. So we'll support him. Because, together, we can take on anything. He's not just a hero. He's a symbol. A rally cry for adults everywhere. A bright light. The Dark Knight.

P.S. Make sure to donate and support charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation nationally, and in your local area, that help children like Miles Scott every day.

It can be as simple as saying "sure, why not" with a slightly amused smile when someone asks if you want to donate a dollar to St. Jude after ordering your pizza or buying a movie ticket.

You can be a hero or, at the very least, you can help a hero.
