Mr. Christian Bale
United States of America

A masked gunman killed 12 people at a midnight showing of the Dark Knight Rises in Colorado early on Friday, sparking pandemonium when he hurled a gas canister into the auditorium and opened fire on moviegoers.

Mr. Christian Bale, the actor who portrayed Batman in the highly successful "Dark Knight Trilogy", as an active humanitarian and a brave soul, we request that you would don the cape and cowl in efforts to uplift the spirits of those children and families of the Aurora Movie theater tragedy.

Please visit the families at the hospital, and show the people and the children that heroes do exist, and that we should not let the disturbing agenda of one man paralyze us into fear, and solitude. The character that you portray is a symbol of hope, we only hope that you can be symbol of hope as man, not just on film, but in reality, in light of this tragedy. Apologies in advance if this request seems forward, no harm or negative attention is meant to come from this, or be associated with this request.

The world needs real tangible heroes. This should not be taken as an attempt to force Mr Bale into any actions, but simply a request for a nice gesture.

The Don the Cape and Cowl petition to Mr. Christian Bale was written by Paul Cruz and is in the category Youth at GoPetition.
