Please tell me y'all have met this kid.
If you haven't, do yourself a favor and stop reading this and go watch this:
That hysterical kid is Robby and he's got a lot to say, like most of the kids in our world. The problem is we don't take the time to always listen. We're quick to demand they listen to us, but we don't always take the time to hear what they have to say.
Our kids want to better the world they live in. Yes, they can be ornery and hateful at times (I do have some experience in this thanks to the lovely age group I spend all day with!), but deep down in their heart of hearts they want to help others and bring good to those around them.
I think we should all take Robby's advice and be more awesome for this world and stop coming up with excuses not to!
