Who is the Little Darth Vader?

Many of you all tuned in last night to watch the Green Bay Packers take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl XLV. I'm not a huge pro-football fan, so I'm the person who is totally excited for all the great commercials. One commercial in particular caught the eye of my husband and I. It was the little boy dressed as Darth Vader trying to use his "powers" to make things move. At the end of the commercial a Volkswagen Passat drives up and Darth Vadar runs out to see if he can get his "powers" to work on the car. Lo and behold (of course with the help from the dad's automatic start), little Darth Vader was able to start the car with his "powers". It was an adorable commercial.

It definitely left you wondering, "who was the little boy behind the mask?" Today, on the "Today Show" the boy behind the Darth Vader mask was revealed. Not only was he an adorable little boy with blonde hair and blue eyes, but he also suffers from a Congenital Heart Defect. He was placed with a pacemaker at the young age of 3 months old at Children's of Los Angeles.

Thank you Lord for helping the doctors, nurses, and researchers save yet another life of a heart warrior.
