Semua orang teringin untuk menjadi adiwira tetapi tiada siapa yang mampu menunjukkan keberanian seperti seorang budak lelaki berusia 6 tahun ini.
Awal minggu ini, Nicole Noel Walker telah berkongsikan kisah mengenai anak sepupunya Bridger yang berdiri di hadapan adik perempuannya untuk melindungi kanak-kanak itu dari seekor anjing yang berlari ke arah mereka.

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, we are so thankful. However, we are asking that those inspired by Bridger to do something kind for another person in Bridger’s honor.
Anjing tersebut akhirnya menyerang dan menggigit Bridger, tetapi dia berjaya menyelamatkan adiknya dari bahaya. Selain terpaksa menerima 90 jahitan di muka, kanak-kanak itu turut didakwa berkata bahawa dia sanggup mati untuk adiknya.
Walker turut memetik nama sebilangan pelakon yang memainkan watak superhero dalam filem-filem terkenal dalam perkongsiannya dan ramai selebriti seperti Anne Hahtaway, Hugh Jackman, Tom Holland, Zachary Levi, Mark Ruffalo, dan Russo Brothers yang menghubungi kanak-kanak itu untuk memuji keberanian dan pengorbanannya.

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.
Chris Evans menyerahkan salah satu perisai Captain America untuk seorang budak lelaki berusia 6 tahun setelah dia melangkah masuk untuk menyelamatkan hari itu.
Namun salah satu mesej yang paling mencuri tumpan adalah daripada Chris Evans yang memainkan watak Captain America, yang mengirimkan Bridger sebuah video pendek yang menawarkan pujian kepadanya.
Bridger, 6 years old, saved his little sister from an attacking dog. He knew he would get hurt, but he did it anyway. He’s a hero.
So, we made this happen. One of the most fulfilling things, ever, huge thanks to Chris Evans.
Spread love. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/PKxeHcyPyk

Kanak-kanak lelaki itu menonton video tersebut sambil menggayakan kostum Captain America, di mana Chris Evans, dia akan mengirimkan perisai Captain America yang asli kepada Bridger kerana sikap murninya itu.
Anjing jiran yang menyerang kanak-kanak itu telah dipersetujui oleh pemiliknya untuk ditidurkan, namun ketika di hospital, Bridger sempat mengatakan dia tidak mahu anjing itu dihukum. Doktor juga mengatakan bahawa Bridger adalah pesakit paling berani yang dia pernah rawat.
