Go Watch The City Of San Francisco Fulfill This Awesome Little Batkid’s Make-A-Wish Dream Right Now – UPDATED

Extremely short version of the story, because you should be watching now. San Francisco got itself turned into Gotham for the day so that Miles, a five-year-old kid battling leukemia, could battle villains instead. People are thronging the shut-down streets, TV news is covering it live, and everyone watching on the internet is bawling their faces off.

Video livestream (sorry, no embedding) because it is happening RIGHT NOW is here.

Follow along in real time on Twitter by following the #SFBatKid hashtag.

Go watch it now so you can cry, cry, cry like the rest of us.

UPDATED: Oh, god, they even did a special edition of the San Francisco Chronicle for the day. This is the best thing ever.
