I must admit, I have been ignoring my blog content lately.  It is funny how coming up with good ideas for every day can be hard and confusing.

I am returning again to one of my favorites but different episodes.  Kid President.

I am also including a little taste into one of my favorite cartoons “Simon’s Cat.”  I hope you enjoy!

 

Until next time.  You are NOT alone.  –Jenn

My Vote: Kid President for President of Inspiration!

“If you can’t think of anything nice to say you’re not thinking hard enough!” 

–Kid President

Have you ever had a day where something fresh and fun is needed for a pick-up?  I was looking for one this morning for writing inspiration, and I came back across Kid President.  I forgot how much this little man impacted my mood.

This Kid, Robby, is just too funny.  He is funny, smart and has the right idea all around!   I can honestly say Robby inspires me and makes me giggle like a child. 🙂  I wanted to find out more about this Kid President, so I went on KidPresident.com and did some research.

Robby’s family launched a summer camp for kids who want to change the world.  The student’s main wish was to leave the world better than they found it.  After seeing the ideas of these young people, the family decided to put a spin on things and hear adult topics from the viewpoint of a kid or Kid President.

Kid President, was started by Robby’s family, specifically his brother-in-law Brad Montague, in Tennessee as a way to give kids a voice.  The family is responsible for the website and content.  The Montague family has been working for years to create things to help shape the way kids see the world and the way the world sees kids.

I hope that Kid President gives you a smile, giggle and a fresh new way of looking at things!  And I sincerely believe you will learn something from him.   Thanks Kid President!!!

Until next time, you are NOT alone!  –Jenn
