I'm not exactly sure when Miles saw Batman for the first time, but the Caped Crusader's message resonated with this young boy so much that when asked by the Make-A-Wish Foundation what his wish would be, it was simple: "I want to be Batman."
Last week, as I stood only a few feet away from President Obama and watched him speak on the need for comprehensive immigration reform, I was reminded of the reasons that I'd filed my naturalization papers so that I could vote for him in the November 2008 election.
