In a Special Message to a Newborn, Kid President Reminds Us Why We're All Here

Kid President gives one of his best speeches yet.


The popular made-for-YouTube production Kid President by the channel SoulPancake has reached new heights in its latest video,  "A Letter to a Person on Their First Day Here."   In the equisitely shot and edited video, Kid President gives heart-melting advice to a newborn baby.  


He begins by pointing out that today, over 360,000 babies will be born, and goes on say to his newborn nephew:


"You're going to meet lots of people here.  Some of them will be really nice, and some won't be.  It's not that they can t– It's just... well maybe they're just having a bad day.  Being a person is hard sometimes.  We should give people high fives just for getting out of bed."




More great advice: "We all mess up sometimes.  The biggest mess-up is not forgiving eachothers' mess ups."


Kid President is Robby Novak, a nine-year-old boy with osteogenesis imperfecta who, with the help of his brother-in-law Brad, makes millions of people laugh, smile, cry, and even dance, on YouTube with his inspiring videos.  You can see how Kid President got its start on SoulPancake.
