World Humanitarian Day

One of the wisest people on the planet is under 5 feet tall and under 10 years old.  Although his birth name is Robby, he is better known worldwide as “Kid President”. A few things that are amazing about this young man:  although he has what is commonly known as Brittle Bone disease which has caused over 7o breaks since birth; not only does he keep on keepin’ on, but he lives an active life that includes running and dancing.  He is also clever and outspoken about all kinds of things, most especially ways to make the world a better place.

I’ve written about him before, but love to hear about new things he is up to. I just watched a brief You Tube video that his brother in-law Brad shot for Soul Pancake which is  Rainn Wilson’s creative baby. In it, Robby tells us about World Humanitarian Day which is coming up this Monday 8/19/2013.

“Every year  on August 19th we mark World Humanitarian Day in honour of aid workers, who have  lost their lives in the line of duty. We commemorate their sacrifice and  reaffirm our commitment to the lifesaving work that humanitarians carry out  around the world every day, often in difficult and dangerous circumstances, where  others cannot or do not want to go. This  year our World Humanitarian Day campaign is calling on people to answer a  question: ‘What do you think the world needs more of?”-Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon
