Miles Scott-The Kid, Not the Cause.

Early morning, Guys…

So, Guys, sorry I haven’t been taking as much as I normally have, but I’ve really been off doing a painting for someone who asked.  I finished today.  I’ll show you tomorrow after it dries, and I seal it.

This morning, I read an article on MovieWeb with an update on Batkid, Miles Scott, who had leukemia when he was 5 when he had a wish granted from the Make-A-Wish foundation and the citizens of San Fran banded together to make young Miles’ dream come true.

Happily, he’s been in remission for the last 5 years.  I’d wondered.  That was the good thing about the article.

Now, my beef with the article…

Make-A-Wish’s quote read self-serving in my opinion in that they said they were a gamechanger in his fight to his remission.

I understand one of the keys to curing a disease like, say, cancer, is mindset, so, although that was a high, that was only one day out of a lengthy battle since he had the disease since he was 1.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not shitting on the foundation, they’re angels making kids’ wishes come true in the face of life and death when the endgame’s never a definite positive.

They came off as throwing in a plug to their cause when the focus should be solely on Miles triumph.

Just my two cents.

Be good to each other.
