Today’s Brilliance from Kaleb Brown

I have a great life, but I know there are kids out there that don’t, and I want to help them. I was bullied when I was in public school, but not everyone can be home-schooled like I am now.

Don’t be sad or scared by bullies. Bullies are actually scared and even jealous of you. Ignore the bully, tell your teacher or an adult in charge, and definitely keep being yourself. You are unique, and that’s a good thing. Being yourself will make you happy. When a bully stops you from being yourself, you will become sad.

Kids need to know they can start on their dreams while they are still young. You don’t have to wait until you are grown up to decide who you want to be or what kind of person you are. Start now. Help people now. Be creative now. Be silly now.

Kids feel powerless, always told what to do by adults and older kids, pushed around by bullies. Kids should focus on what makes them happy. Shut out all the negativity. Kids have more power than they think they do. My dream is to inspire other kids find what makes them happy and put it to good use.

Asperger’s and Autism should not be feared or seen as a weakness. My Asperger’s makes me silly and draw really well. What talents do you have? How can you use your talents to make the world a better place? Helping others makes me happy. Find what makes you happy and ask your parents to help you put a plan into action.

Just because we’re kids doesn’t mean we can’t help people. Just because we are kids doesn’t mean we don’t have talents or good ideas. Think about what makes you happy, and ask your parents how you can use your talents to do something impressive. I try to use my talents to help kids who aren’t as happy as I am.

I don’t think kids should let anyone tell them that they can’t do something because they are just a kid. You don’t need to be a grown up to make your dreams come true. Grown ups should help kids follow their dreams, or their talents. I am very lucky to have an early start on my dreams.

If you don’t do what makes you happy, grab a bowl of potato chips, sit on the couch, and be prepared to be disappointed with your life. That’s it, find something that inspires you and go for it, or settle in for disappointment later in life. This is your life, make it awesome, no matter what age you are.
