Pretty cool stuff.. go get them BatKid. KAPOW!

Yahoo wrote:
A little boy is about to get the surprise of a lifetime when San Francisco turns itself into Gotham City on Nov. 15 to fulfill the 5-year-old leukemia patient's wish to be Batman for a day.

"He is a sunny, positive little boy and finds his inspiration in super heroes," Make-a-Wish said of the boy, Miles. "When we interviewed Miles for a wish, he surprised even his parents: he wishes to BE BatKid!"

Make-a-Wish decided to make Miles' dream come true and, in a rare move for the foundation, asked the public to participate.

"This is one that we thought of as a great opportunity for people to share in the power of a wish so they can see how it affects not only the children and their families, but also the other people involved," Jen Wilson, marketing and promotions manager for Make-a-Wish in San Francisco, told ABCNews.com. "It has a big impact on many people."

The organization has created an entire day catered to Miles' dream.

On the morning of Nov. 15, a breaking news story will appear on TV in San Francisco. The police chief will be asking if anyone knows where Batkid is because he needs his help to solve a crime and "bringing the bad guys to justice," Make-a-Wish said in a statement.

Miles' day will then include rescuing a damsel in distress tied up across the Hyde Street cable car line and capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault. As Batkid eats his lunch at Burger Bar, he'll get a special message from the chief telling him to go to the window where he'll look out over Union Square and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down and asking for his help.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Read about this too ... actually swelled up a bit with happiness for the little man. This is about the only thing that could make me want to visit San Francisco.

We as a society sit and argue, bitch and throw temper tantrums over bullshit like politics.. pitting one sector of society against another for power and money.

Yet when we really want to.. probably need to do something humane and kind like this.. it can be done. We spend way to much time "hating" on one another to see what our true potential is.

This kid.. Miles Scott, will never forget this day.. the simple acts of kindness of others.

Anyway... I am sure the world will devour this feel good story within moments with the political pandering and bickering.

Someday.. just maybe adults will start acting like adults on Capital Hill and across America.. and remember we are on the same side. Doubt it.. but.. hey, who would have guess 10,000 people would unite to make a wish.

Just watched a few videos of it and I admit that it was cool to see so many people show up.
