The effervescent "Kid President" (AKA Robbie Novak) serves-up a half-time pep talk guaranteed to light your fire. He chides us for being boring and encourages us to "take the path that leads to awesome." We have work to do, he says, "and we can cry about it or we can dance about it... It is everybody's duty to give the world a reason to dance."

    My son asked me to watch this the evening before having to deliver a eulogy at the memorial service of a special young man who had been tragically killed in an accident the week before and I was grappling with the writing of the eulogy..... This pep talk epitomized everything that this young man was about - awesome! Giving everyone that he met a reason to smile and dance! So thank you Kid President, my son Dario and Mohale who gave me a reason to smile and dance!

    I want to be on the one path that leads to awesome too. Thanks for such a heartfelt and inspiring video to begin thinking about how one person can give the world something awesome. I'm going to chase this goal until I figure it out.

    The kid is lucky as he is not struggling with day to day food and shelter. Only in america a kid can get away with such things. He should be studying or playing and not worry about this shit we are talking about. We are too rich here and we need such stupid diversion.let him stay as kid!

    I love this video although I have to say my favorite line is "not cool Robert Frost." So much wisdom from the heart of a child.

  • Michele

    I was just thinking of all of this and talking about it to my family. We are all attuned to one another. I would so much love to acknowledge children in this way SO SO much more often! So I will. I sure hope others do, too all the while knowing it is up to each individual to allow this for themselves. I am grateful. Thank you!
