Kids Saving the World

I ran across this video today about Kids and the World's Problems. I just love how these kids think. It is both refreshing and awe inspiring at the same time. Refreshing because of their optimism and lack of intimidation. Awe-inspiring because my generation - that's you and me, peeps - are the ones who are supposed to be doing the things that they are dreaming about.

I think that many times we don't take the time to listen to our kids and the really really big things that they want to do. Kids may act like all they want is a lazy afternoon of video games and television, but deep down, they would rather make a difference in the world. Let's start opening our eyes to the possibility that our children can do bigger and better things than we've ever given them credit for doing...and guess what....so can we.

My daughter inspires me everyday. And my friends are amazed at how much I trust her to make healthy choices for herself instead of demanding she do so. Thanks for the great info yet again!
