Very nice, heartwarming story out of San Francisco today.
Miles Scott is a 5 year old boy who has been fighting leukemia since he was a baby. He made a "wish" through the "Make a Wish Foundation" that he could be superhero for one day.
So, to Miles' surprise, he became "Batkid" and he had to save San Francisco, which turned into "Gotham City" for the day. He got to do things like save a damsel in distress, fight off a bank robbery and save the SF Giants' mascot. Over 12,000 people came to cheer BatKid on..
Congressmembers (Democrats & Republicans), VP Biden & President Obama all made short videos thanking Batkid for his work. And the San Francisco Chronicle printed a special newspaper edition entitled "Gotham City Chronicle" thanking Batkid for saving the day..
Kudos to San Francisco for making this a special day for Miles!!
