The Real Superhero

This has to be one of the best “feel good” stories I’ve read in a long time.  Sometimes the world is truly a wonderful place, and I think the Make-A-Wish organization in the bay area needs to take the bow they deserve, along with all of the thousands of volunteers that are making this happen today.  Here is the link to the story about Miles, aka #SFBatkid, who has been fighting leukemia for most of his life and only had a tube removed from his chest a month ago.  I got teary-eyed just reading about it.

And there will be a special edition of the San Francisco Chronicle to commemorate the event as well.

I will be sending a little donation to Make-A-Wish today and hope others will consider doing so, too, because somehow I just know that Batkid is going to save the day and all will be well in the world once again.

Update 11/17/13:  If you missed out on this story as it happened, there is a good summary video below, as well as links to a few other articles and pictures that I found afterward.  For the record, my mom and I followed along via Twitter updates as we ate lunch out on Friday, and it made me choke up more than once.  I know we were not the only ones either, as many people posted via Twitter that they were following along at work or elsewhere and crying right along with us.
