Ashton's Inspiring Speech

Lets get serious for a minute here. 

I just came across an acceptance speech by Ashton Kutcher at this year's Teen Choice Awards that blew my mind. It's not that he said anything new. It's all been said before a million times by a million people. But then again,  there's nothing wrong with repeating something so good and so precious!

If you haven't seen this, please watch it. And then show it to your sons and daughters. Your sisters and your brothers. Your nieces and nephews. And your students. Everyone should hear this. And take a moment to think about it. And then do something about it!

The sad thing about this video, although it is extremely inspiring, is the behavior of the young girls and boys in audience. My guess is none of them heard a word he said. Or maybe they did. But I think it's a safe bet to say not a lot of them remembers it. They just kept screaming at randoms words he spoke, all the while being completely oblivious to the importance of those words. 

I've always been a fan of Ashton. And after watching this, I'm honored to have met and spoken to him; even if it was brief. This is a smart person. If you watch the video on YouTube, you can see a lot of comments by people who refuse to accept the fact that this was a good speech. It's best to ignore those people. Because not one word of this is false. It's all true and makes so much sense. And it needs to be said more often. Maybe then, it might stick with a handful of kids that would eventually grow up to be amazing people. 

Please share. 
Have a good day :)
