Christian Bale – Who is really in the Batman costume?

Tuesday, I became a Christian Bale fan. I got to see him in his most impressive role, being Christian Bale.

On another day, we can discuss crisis communication plans, social media marketing or SEO tips. Today, I want to share with you a celebrity of mega-world status humbling himself.

As you may know, Christian is the star of the movie The Dark Knight Rises. He plays the lead character, Batman. On opening night, in Aurora, Colo. a lone gunman senselessly, brutally killed 12 people, injured 59 others and changes the lives of thousands more.

I saw the star of the movie compelled to visit Aurora. Christian wanted to privately express his gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and first responders to this horrific tragedy. He visited victims, patients, caregivers, police and fire departments. He brought a message of thanks. If sprinkling a little celebrity brings some joy to people who have worked tirelessly to save lives, Christian believes it is the least he can do.

In our capacity as the public relations team for the Medical Center of Aurora, I saw the faces of the first responders after spending a few moments with Christian. Those who are normally behind the scenes treating others received some special treatment.

It was a great example of someone doing what they can do. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all did what we can do?

Well done Christian Bale!

    One of the main reasons that have led to the failure
    of other diet plans when compared to HCG weight loss drops is
