Have y’all noticed that I have no idea what I’m doing yet? #UmmmIAccidentallyWentViral? When I first posted for Bridger, I expected maybe 500 likes at most and maybe a couple dozen reshares. But here we are. So much love from all walks of life (including a few celebs)! And we just got off a call with a friendly neighborhood idol. (Pic is of Bridger’s reaction right after the call.) Bridger is over the moon! Can’t wait to show him what’s next: a message from some guy who doesn’t like bullies. Gotta wait for the stardust to clear from his eyes first, though. Mission accomplished, everyone! We can’t thank you enough. #BridgerStrong EDIT: I feel like I should also mention that Bridger has also loved all of the other videos and messages I’ve shown him from all of you. We might not be able to get to everyone right away, but your messages are no less appreciated.
Nikki je zapisal: “Moj nečak je junak, ki je svojo malo sestrico rešil pred napadalnim psom. Sam je vskočil med psa in sestrico in jo tako ubranil.” Dodal je še: “Kasneje mi je povedal ‘če bo kdo umrl, potem moram to biti jaz’. Po tem, ko ga je pes večkrat ugriznil v obraz, je pograbil sestrico za roko in skupaj z njo stekel na varno.”
Sodeč po nadaljnjih zapisih, seje mali Bridger že vrnil domov iz bolnišnice, njegov stric Nikki pa upa, da bodo ljudje po vsem svetu izvedeli za njegovo junaško dejanje.
Spodaj si poglejte fotografije, kako zelo jo je skupil mali Bridger, ki ga je napadel pes:

Hey, all. Please, share my nephew’s story so that it gets as much exposure as it can. We know that our little hero would love some words of encouragement from his favorite heroes. On July 9th, my six year old nephew Bridger saved his little sister’s life by standing between her and a charging dog. After getting bit several times on the face and head, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe. He later said, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” After receiving 90 stitches (give or take) from a skilled plastic surgeon, he’s finally resting at home. We love our brave boy and want all the other superheroes to know about this latest hero who joined their ranks. @tomholland2013 @chrishemsworth @robertdowneyjr @markruffalo @prattprattpratt @twhiddleston @chadwickboseman @vindiesel @chrisevans EDIT: I just finished visiting with Bridger at his home. His wounds are looking so much better! He’s in great spirits, and his awesome personality is intact. He can’t smile too widely yet, but he was grinning as I read some of your comments to him. I’d also like to mention here that the dog’s owners are really great people who have been nothing but kind to Bridger and his family. We feel no resentment toward them at all, and—if anything—there’s only been an increase of love between our families as a result of this incident. EDIT 2: Once again we’re blown away by the amazing comments and messages that Bridger’s receiving. I’ve had lots of inquiries about a GoFundMe. Bridger’s family has asked that any one wishing to help out financially can, instead, donate to @mission_22 or @wwp. Bridger is also a huge fan of Science, especially Geology. So I’m going to start a post where people can share with him pictures of cool rocks that they see. EDIT 3: Once again, everyone’s kindness has meant so much to us. I’m trying to get to all of the messages that I can, but it may take some time. For those who have inquired about sending Bridger some rocks, here’s the address to use: Bridger Walker P.O. Box 22141 Cheyenne, WY 82003 #BridgerStrong
Na čudovito junaško dejanje tega bratca so se na družbenih omrežjih odzvali tudi številni zvezdniki, med drugim Mark Ruffalo, ki je zapisal: “Dragi Bridger, prebal sem, kaj se ti je zgodilo, zato ti pišem, da ti povem da so ljudje, ki ogrozijo sebe, da bi zaščitili druge, najbolj junaški in skrbni ljudje, kar jih poznam. Resnično spoštujem in občudujem tvoj pogum in tvoje srce. Resnični pogum je to, da veš kar je prav, kaj moraš storiti, čeprav jo boš morda zaradi tega tudi sam skupil. Si večji moški kot pa številni, ki jih poznam. Z občudovanjem, Mark Ruffalo.”
Odzvala se je tudi oskarjevka Octavia Spencer, ki je zapisala: “Cenim te mali junak. Angelski objemi zate.”
Vanessa Morgan je komentirala: “Kakšen pogum. Najboljši starejši bratec in resnični junak. Hitro se pozdravi.”
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino pa je zapisal: “Lahko meriš višino, ne moreš pa izmeriti srca #junak.”
