Everyday, someone inspirational can motivate you to do greater things. Usually, these individulas tend to be older and wiser with much more wisdom to share. Last night, during the annual CNN Heroes presentation. I stumbled upon Pat Pedraja, an amazing young man who has done some absolutely wonderful things to help raise money and awareness to help kids with Leukemia.

I would like us all to read his moving speech -

"Thank you, I'm so excited and first of all I'd like to thank all the heroes that were featured online with me,' he said during his acceptance speech. "They are all such amazing people doing amazing things and it's really an honor to be among them."

"With just a cheek swab you can be on the national bone marrow's registry in over 50 countries and doing something so simple, you could be the one to save a life like a kid like me,' he said. "All of us have the power to make a difference. You just can never give up and always believe. I just want to let everyone know, you are never too young to change the world."

I would like to help him by spreading the word about voting for him on CNN's website.

May you live long, Pat!
