If you're not bawling at your computer right now, you're not paying attention.
The entire city of San Francisco—sorry, Gotham—was riveted today by the exploits of Batkid, Miles, a five-year old leukemia patient (it's in remission right now) who, thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation got to live out his superhero dreams across the city today. Thousands of volunteers participated as Miles defeated the Riddler and the Penguin. Mayor Lee will presented Miles with a key to the city and Police Chief Greg Suhr did his best Commissioner Gordon impersonation.
The crowds on the street were joined by those on social media. Here's what you had to say about Batkid on Twitter this morning:@BrianBowman_: “He likes to be a super hero,” Batkid's mom said. “He is one. He beat an awful disease” http://t.co/62m6tSZ4I9 #SFBatKid @daisy: #SFBatKid is my hero. As are the companies who make waterproof mascara. @akadianephan: I cannot handle the cuteness of all the the coverage around #SFBatKid. Work productivity is steadily plummeting. @matthew_cain: An entire major city is shut down so a kid can play superhero and it's the best thing. #SFBatKid pic.twitter.com/1xNk4euxsA @FUnkymoses17: The #SFBatKid 's little brother was dressed up as Robin...this is too much emotion for a Friday @GabeDuverge: Just so I'm on the record, I'd take #SFBatKid in the new movie over Ben Affleck any day.
