2012’s Inspiring Kids
HTE Kids’ News believes that all kids are inspiring.
Kids are the ones who show adults how to truly live. The wonderful ideas, the creative solutions, the dreams, the focus, the bravery, the trust, and the expressions of love — just some of what make kids extraordinary. Every day.
As 2012 comes to a close, and in light of recent events, we’d like to share with you some of the sights, sounds, spirit, and symbols, of just a few of this year’s amazing children.

The United Nations declared November 10th to be Malala Day. Some believe she should win a Nobel Peace Prize. She has already won an international youth peace prize that was recently renamed in her honor.
