Batkid Saves the Day! #SFBatkid

Because this was just too awesome, I had to drop what I was doing and share this with you.

Miles is a five-year-old with cancer. His wish, through Make-a-Wish Foundation, was to become Batman for a day. The community – and the entire country – answered that wish in a big way.

As I write this, Twitter is abuzz with tweets about Miles. Twitchy has a collection of tweets about Batkid that has to be seen to be believed.

I really don’t have the words to describe what an amazing story this is. The outpouring of support for Miles is the sort of thing that restores one’s faith in humanity.
