"You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again."

Azar Nafisi 

Everything you love is here

How many years before I can vote for this child? 

How much longer?!

We watched one of his videos in my english class last year, my teacher told us he has some sort of illness and is not expected to live  full life, so he makes these videos because he wants to impact the world while he can…



Not quite
He has brittle bone disease, which does impact quality of life but in most cases not life expectancy; he does Kid President videos because he wants to inspire others and his parents encourage him because they believe that kids have a voice.
He still lives a relatively normal life outside of disability, as does his sister. Plays outside, dances, goes to school, all these normal kid things. He wants to be a Marine when he grows up, and nothing I’ve found indicates he is trying to work on a shortened timeline (I also can’t find what type of brittle bone disease he has, but most types don’t seem to actually shorten your life that much if at all). He’s on medicine to improve bone density so he doesn’t break as often, and he doesn’t seem to care about the illness at all. It’s right there in his about that he’s doing this because he wants to and his parents/extended family are supportive.
Kid President is out there to inspire. Don’t turn him into inspiration porn. He’s not working on any sort of shortened timeline. He’s doing this because he’s a kid with big ideas and his parents are letting him explore them.
