Some Beauty in the World: Miles aka Bat Kid and the Make-A-Wish Foundation

I see so many people concentrating on the negative and the bitter divides in our nation these days…so figured I’d share something that reminded me of the simple good we can do in this world…



From a blog at the San Francisco Chronicle paper:

S.F. to be transformed into Gotham City for 5-year-old’s Make-A-Wish


Five-year-old Miles is a “sunny, positive little boy” who is fighting a battle against leukemia. Thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation, he will get the chance to fulfill his dream of being … wait for it … Batman! On November 15, Make-A-Wish foundation will transform San Francisco into Gotham city for a day, with thousands of volunteers already signed up to play along.

Along with a grownup Batman sidekick, Miles will get a call from the police chief and jump into his very own Batmobile to defend the city against some of his fiercest foes – including the Riddler and Penguin.

Make-A-Wish Bay Area describes the plot line of the day:

After rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batman will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a call on his batphone to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batman’s help. Why?

Because the Penguin will be kidnapping a famous Gotham City mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!

After catching the Penguin, Batman will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of Gotham City will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!

The Make-A-Foundation will provide more details and updates on the event soon. Check their page as Miles’ big day draws nearer for ways you can help: Miles’ Wish



About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    I am not a religious person, but there has to be a guardian angel in this world to bring such joy to this young man. This is going to be the greatest day of this boy’s life. His parents greatest day is when he was born, but this will be a close second. I can’t wait to read more about this story. Have a nice night everyone.
