Unless you’ve been living under a rock you should by now have encountered the wonderful heartwarming tale of 5 year-old Miles Scott aka Batkid.
Miles is in remission from leukemia, he’s had it tough so far in life so the Make A Wish Foundation decided to make his dream come true to be Batman.
The events played out in San Francisco on Friday. Batkid had a very busy day saving a woman who was taken hostage, tacking the Riddler and the Penguin all the while urged on a cheering flashmob.
Social media is often discounted as idle time wasting, but these kind of events show how our loose online connections can help us achive things that would simply have been impossible beforehand.
