Here’s one for humanity’s “win” column.
My friend Evan Benn writes about an amazing 13-year-old boy and his granted wish in today’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I remember this sweet kid from Anthony Bourdain’s appearance at the Fox Theatre. Who wouldn’t? So many people waited in line that evening to ask questions that ranged from funny to pretentious, but Evan Piña-White stood out — not because of his tragic diagnosis (that’s one for the Universe’s “lose” column) but because of his pure happiness, his joy to be speaking with one of his heroes.
This kid’s trip to Spain will be phenomenal — dining on seafood at the suggestion of his personal hero Tony Bourdain, courtesy of the amazing, anonymous heroes at the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
