In the past ten days or so, I have been sharing the following clip with pretty much everyone I know, mainly for two reasons.

First, this kid is eighteen. Yes, you read right, 18 years old. He reached voting age just in time for this presidential election. Listening to him, I have felt my hope for a better future being renewed. Here’s a wonderful example of the generation who came of age during this time.

Second, I think that the sometime acrimonious conversationĀ  over race, discrimination against homosexuals or other minorities, the financial crisis, and other matters, would benefit a lot by remembering that we are just at the starting point.

So, without further blathering ado, here is Daniel Brown:


  • What an amazing and informed young man. Makes me so proud of our youth and I know he’s not the only one out there who used his head and not his emotions to make his choices. Yay America!
