And Then There was #Batkid

Hope is good and it keeps us curious in most uncertain of times. And Hope is what people of San Francisco gave to the 5 year old Miles who is fighting Leukemia. Make-a-wish foundation made Miles dream possible of becoming the Batman. San Francisco morphed itself as Gotham city ,Twelve Thousand volunteers came to cheer Miles as he saved the day at SF Gotham city.

It was a hallmark of creativity and kindness of the Volunteers and Batkid went on saving the city from Robbers and Kidnappers.

It didn’t take long, Miles became a sweetheart of Social media. #Batkid was the trending topic on Twitter on both Friday and Saturday.Even President Obama took time to congratulate the Batkid.  

 

Everyone, who is fighting cancer is some sort of super hero and these kind of events surely gives extra strength to the Cancer fighters.

I was so moved by it when I read about it. Only San Francisco could do something like it. Kudos to the foundation, volunteers, media, people of SF and everyone else associated with this event.
