Kid President: There are lots of ideas how
you can change the world. Some people think you should just complain about it. That won’t
change the world, it will just make it mad! Some people think you have to have lots of
money money. Making it rain everywhere you go! Holla for a dollar! Some people think
you have to be really loud and yell a lot. Like with a bullhorn shouting, “Hey you! Yeah,
you! Do it my way, right now!” Other people choose to just make fun of everything.
That’s dumb, that’s dumb, everyone’s dumb. It’s easy to make fun of stuff, but it’s cooler
to make stuff! Some people think changing the world can only be done by the smartest
person in the world. Just put them in a room and let them figure it out!
“The solution to world hunger? Food.” Wow, that was like, so amazing.
Some people see all the bad in the world and they just decide to ignore it, but that won’t
help anything. Some people think you have to be really famous and super cool. In fact,
lots of people think you have to be really powerful to make a difference. Like being
mayor or senator or president. But the truth is, a title doesn’t make you more important,
the world is changed by you! It’s one person filled with love. And they just have to live
it out so they do something awesome! Then that person is filled with love and they do
something awesome. It just goes on, and on, and on! And next thing you know everything’s
awesome! Some people think it’s impossible to change the world. Well you can see why
they could think that. Living in a world with kids who are hungry, people who are homeless,
families who aren’t happy, I’m just trying to figure it out like everybody else man.
I do know this though, Next time you feel overwhelmed or totally alone, remember this,
things don’t have to be the way they are. The world is changed by ordinary people. Little
people living out big love! And that’s what gives the world a reason to dance! [music] So, how do we change the world?
At the start of this year, I asked all you guys to make the year more awesome! The time
to be awesome is now! Make this year awesome for somebody else! Whether it’s helping the
homeless with Socktober, throwing a parade for somebody, or giving an inspired gift!
You helped prove that the internet can be an awesome place!
Thank you, but we’re not done yet. This coming year, let’s show the world
what awesome really looks like. SoulPancake
