How Kid President approaches taking action
  • What are you not okay with?

  • What do you have?

  • What can we do about it?

These three questions are from this video from Kid President:

His video is a call to action for people everywhere to ask themselves these questions and then to take whatever action they can.

1. I am not okay with the slaughter of dolphins or the trapping and raising of dolphins and marine animals in captivity for the purpose of human entertainment.

2. What do I have? Well, if I were Michael Beerens I would say that I have artistic talent and the ability and passion to create videos of my art.

How could you use these questions to help your students in their quest to take action?
