Inspiration for Today: Batman

Most people know Batman as a crime fighting superhero. Around Maryland and Washington, DC, he is also fighting the blues.

A couple of times a month, Lenny Robinson drives to hospitals in his personal Batmobile dressed in a full Batman suit. He visits with children battling cancer and other serious conditions, hands out Batman toys, poses for pictures, and brings smiles to the faces of the children and their parents. A “self-made success” with “the bank account to prove it” (his Batmobile is actually a Lamborghini), Robinson himself purchased the costume, Batmobile, and the gifts he hands out. He hasn’t sought recognition for his work, but a family friend finally convinced Robinson to let him reveal his identity. Click here to read the profile in the Washington Post.

For a lot of families, Lenny Robinson really is a superhero.
