Kid President Meets the Real President. I’m Verklempt.
Kid President is a 9-year old boy named Robbie Novak who manages to have more compassion and optimism in his little body than most of us can muster up. And he’s inspiring and adorable and just awesome.
I was introduced to him through this pep talk he gave us all, telling us to wake up and change the world and dream and “It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”
Well, he finally met President Barack Obama when he was invited to the White House and this amazing video happened.
I’m totally not crying! My eyes are just sweating a little. SHARRAP!
I just love this so much. First of all, that super awesome hand shake he first gave the President. Aawwww childhood enthusiasm! And then the tour around the Oval Office. And then when he asked “How can kids and grown-ups work together to change the world?” and Prez Obama gave him a speech on treating folks fairly. He talked TO him and not at him. Their interaction is just adorable.
This is just the cutest thing I’ve seen in such a long time. It touched me all in my heartspace and gave me the warm and fuzzies. Kid President is awesome and our President is awesome for inviting him to the White House. And the fact that he even got the opportunity to be there and see someone who looks like him. Just powerful.
Honestly, there’s so much terrible news in the world and people acting like they lost all their minds and folks just being monsters. We need more things like this to give us hope. I am HERE for this vid!
I just… I’m verklempt. Y’all talk amongst yourselves. *bites fist*
And tell me whatcha thought bout the video.
