In all seriousness, though, Miles Scott is a hero. When the five-year-old was asked for his wish for the Make-a-Wish foundation, he said that he wanted to be Batkid. Not any Batkid, though. The Batkid. And, as the Make-A-Wish foundation does, they made it happen!
Volunteers lined the streets with signs that read "Batkid you are my hero!" and "San Francisco loves Batkid", and cheered when he ran past. So many other people got involved. The Giants mascot agreed to be kidnapped by The Riddler, one of many actors that helped in making dreams come true. The San Francisco police department helped tow him around. The Mayor of San Francisco hosted a public ceremony where he awarded Miles a key to Gotham by the Bay with his name on it, as well as another key made of Ghiradelli chocolate. President Obama even congratulated Miles via a Vine message.
This was by far the biggest scale wish that Make-A-Wish has done. Make-A-Wish reached out to the community to grant this wish, and it worked. There was major support on the Internet, and people followed Miles' journey both on foot and by Twitter.
It's affected not only our little hero, but everyone else who participated in it. It just proves that when charities reach out for help from the community, the community delivers. And, in this case, they showed a little hero how much the world appreciated him.
