When factions are at war around the world, and Democrats and Republicans are showing the country how they deal with disagreements; children between the ages of 5 – 18 years old are focusing on kindness and in their 2-minute kindness speeches many could probably solve the problems of the world.

They at least agree on one point, being kind has benefits and will make this world a better place.

Just ask Braylon Thomas. An 11-year old at Cedar Hill Collegiate Prep Elementary, he hopes to follow in the footsteps of Orion Jean, another Texan, who at nine-years-old captured the National Kindness Speech title in 2020.

This year, Braylon is a finalist and he has made it to the top seven. Now it is up to the people, the voters, to determine the winner.

Braylon’s speech was about suicide awareness and he said he wants to create a student-led organization to educate students on suicide prevention.

The contest is judged by some of the top youth speakers from across the country, and then America picks the winner!

The last day to vote is Friday, June 17, 2022. You can vote for Braylon at

Braylon is the son of Jamila and Brandon Thomas.
