Help Me. BatKid!

I’m gonna cry



Source: LIVE UPDATES: Batkid's Make-a-Wish Transforms San Francisco Into Gotham

There are days when I don’t want to get out of bed for fear of bumping into and having to interact with, what I laughingly call, my fellow humans. My Lord, we are a bunch of shellfish douchebags, aren’t we.

But then, something happens that just makes my day:

All day, liveblog.abcnews.go.com has been covering BatKid, and his quest to save San Fransico from the clutches of the Penguin:

A little boy will get the surprise of a lifetime today when San Francisco transforms into Gotham City to fulfill the 5-year-old leukemia patient's wish to be Batman for a day.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation has created an entire day catered to Miles' dream.

Miles' day will include seeing a breaking news story on a TV. The police chief will be asking whether 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.

He'll spend the afternoon 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.

A villain will be kidnapping a famous San Francisco mascot and BatKid will rush to the rescue. His last stop will be City Hall, where the mayor and police chief will thank him and present him with a key to the city and a crowd will be cheering him on.

Even the San Fransicio Giants took part in BatKid Day:

 

 

I’m sorry, I was busy cutting onions *sniff*

You can follow the adventures of BatKid live here. Now excuse me, I have something in my eye.

This was cool to hear about.

I wonder how long Jude will be in jail for being Tobias Whale?

WHAT?! It's a joke!

The cast of "Arrow" posted a Thank You Batkid video.

THAT is cool, too.

This is one of those events that make you think the world has hope. Unlike the rest of the news.

Make A Wish is cool, and brings out a lot of the best in people. One thing I didn't get in all the coverage I saw was how the kid is. Getting better hopefully? I don't really even know if there's a cure for that, or even an effective treatment.

In any event, kudos for all those involved in giving him a great day.

This. It gives me hope that there's a segment of humanity that actually gives a damn. Awesome! Go, Batkid,

This is the type of story that I wish there was more of. It's great that the city came together and created such a special day for Miles. Hopefully we will hear about more stories like this in the future.

The kid's living the dream! And San Fran REALLY bent over backwards to pull this off! Awesome! :-D

I've heard reports from elsewhere (NBC and the like) that he's recovering from his leukemia.
