Sometimes, we underestimate kids. We see them as kind of useless (sorry kids), as if children just want to play games and have fun and be silly. At least that is primarily how they come across sometimes, and that is perfectly fine. That is part of the joys of being a child. But what about the kids who are changing the world? What about the kids who are showing us that not all kids want to sit back and be silly? Some kids realize there are issues in this world that need addressing and are doing all the can to change those things. Students like Kylie Simonds, who was diagnosed with cancer but was always being tripped up by her I.V bag. So what did she do? She invented an pediatric I.V backpack which would ease the burden for children with the disease. Thing is, that is just one out of ten.
So the next time you see a group of kids and naturally assume they are just playing around, stop and take a moment to realize one of those kids may just have the intellect, passion, and drive to change and better the world.
