Video: 'I'm a 10-year-old and I get it'

by Jeremy Hooper

Climbing trees. Foiling substitute teachers. Sending messages to the President of the United States. Ah, youth:


GET EQUAL

Your thoughts

I love that kid.

I like the part where he told the sub she could go jump off a bridge. Priceless. But he makes a good point, he got into a little bit of trouble but moved the cause forward because we do not have full liberty and equality in the U.S.

And I say that because it goes far beyond just marriage equality. We still don't have full racial equality either.

Bright kid, smart parents... I have hope for the future, despite the doom and gloom the party of 'NO' presents.

I would be honored to have this kid in any or all of my classes. He "gets it" a lot more than most of my high school students.

What's not to love about this bespectacled young person who has bigger brass ones than our President, 3/4 of Congress and the Senate?

Who can't admire a junior Morris Dees in the making?
In fact, I'm calling the Southern Poverty Law Center and putting them on notice that they've got a prodigy here.

He gives me so much hope.

What part of Arkansas is this kid in? I want to send him a big love letter.
