As Daniel Borowy, a special education student at Perry Hall, remained in critical condition, his classmates took to the Internet to try to cheer him up in the only way they could think of -- to get his favorite singer to come visit him in the hospital.
Students started a campaign Tuesday asking everyone they knew to ask everyone they knew to Tweet "#GagaVisitDaniel" in hopes that Lady Gaga, a huge presence on Twitter, would see it and find a way to visit Daniel.
Daniel is a massive fan of the star. According to his classmates, he keeps a suitcase packed, just in case he can ever get to California and ask her to marry him. He was shot in the back by another student Monday on the first day of school.
Almost overnight, hundreds of people have Tweeted the plea, and it's still trending this morning, despite no acknowledgement on Twitter from Gaga.
Though the effort started with Daniel's classmates, it quickly spread to their parents and friends of the family, to local reporters and even to a few Baltimore Ravens like Bernard Pollard and Torrey Smith, who promised he'd convince more teammates to tweet the message.
