Are You Giving The World A Reason To Dance?

Are You Giving the World a Reason to Dance?Tell me, are you giving the world a reason to dance? Kid President wants to know.

If you haven’t heard of Kid President, he’s an amazing 9-year-old child who’s described by Wikipedia (and Rainn Wilson of The Office) as an American comedian, motivational speaker and YouTube sensation.

What Kid President really is, though, is a child on a mission to change the world. And he thinks we all need a pep talk.

To remind us that, “It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.” 

Now, because I love Kid President so much, I want as many people as possible to hear his pep talk – really, just from a production standpoint alone, it’s amazing how a child this young can execute a script so well!

But what’s even more amazing is that Kid President (aka, Robby Novak) maintains such a joyful attitude despite having Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a brittle bone condition that’s contributed to his having over 70 breaks since birth.
