This story has been all over the news the past few days.  A 5 year old kid battling Leukemia was granted a wish to become Batman by the Make-A-Wish foundation and it seems that practically the whole city of San Francisco pulled together to make his wish come true.

I first caught a glimpse of it on my Facebook newsfeed as a story with the headline “BATKID SAVES CITY” showing the “Gotham City Chronicle” Newspaper.  Turns out the San Francisco Chronicle printed this special edition for their paper to be handed out as people gathered for the big event in the streets of San Francisco.

Check out this video telling a little about the story.  What an amazing thing to do for a kid going through such a tough thing.
