Make A Difference - One Kid At A Time

When I see young guys step up and take on the world, it increases my optimism about the state of the world. In this wonderful video, Birke Baehr takes on "what's Wrong With Our Food System? And How Can We Make A Difference?" at the TEDxNextGeneration meeting in Asheville, NC. I'm sure he's had some adult support to show up this way, but he is certainly the right kid for the challenge. In this talk Birke gives new meaning to the line from the poem Boys, " . . . A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.”
