The official Batkid video is your morning cry

Two months ago, San Francisco put life on hold for a day to help make the dream of a young leukemia patient named Miles come true. Miles is 5 and dreamed of being Batman. So, as you know by now, the city banded together with the Make-A-Wish foundation to set up an entire day when Miles could run around the city foiling bank robberies and rescuing mascots and saving damsels in distress.
