    Though small acts of kindness are to be appreciated, there's nothing like an awesome, grandiose act of kindness, either!

    The story of Batkid Miles Scott—a 5-year-old who is now in remission from leukemia and who, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco, got to live out his dream of helping the good citizens of Gotham for a day—has prompted a revelatory outpouring of excitement from all around the world—and that includes the White House.

    "Way to go, Miles, way to save Gotham," President Barack Obama encouraged the real-life hero in a Vine video.

    FLOTUS was of a similar mind as her husband, with Michelle Obama also tweeting: "Thanks for catching all those bad guys #SFBatKid! You're an inspiration to us all. -mo"

    And the epic event that was Miles' day of fightin' crime and being absolutely adorable also inspired a massive, warm bear hug from the celebrity twitterverse. Here's a sampling of the joy that the image of Miles living his dream brought to so many:
