There is nothing more powerful than listening to thoughtful youth expressing their ideas and hopes. The 2013 Children’s/Youth Inaugural Address features the unscripted voices and experiences of young Americans who know they have a stake in the next four years. Children and youth ages 5 to 25 from across the country share their raw, powerful ideas for what the nation needs to get back on track and ensure every kid in the U.S. grows up healthy, safe and productive. Watch it, add your voice at http://sparkaction.org/inaugural and share it!
Take time tonight to ask your kids what they would say to the President about what is important. Listen with your full attention, accept their words without judgment, and thank them for telling you. A broader discussion will likely emerge over the coming days.
