Bat Kid

If you happened to avoid any news on Friday or during the weekend, perhaps you missed the story of Bat Kid. I'll let AP explain:

Dressed in a black Batman costume, his fists clenched as he took on foe after foe around San Francisco, a 5-year-old boy who has battled leukemia for years fulfilled his wish Friday to be his favorite superhero.

In the process, Miles Scott became a darling of social media and attracted thousands of fans around the country, including the White House.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco did amazing work in helping make a kid's dream come true. Check out the videos below. Please note that it might start getting a little dusty in the room.

I saw this as it was happening and I think it's one of the best Make-A-Wish things I've seen. I love how the whole city got involved and everyone was cheering him on. What an experience.
