Consider Jonathan Krohn. This 13-year-old homeschooler recently published a book about conservatism after interviewing several state legislators. Now he plans to go on a mini book tour around his state.

“Define Conservatism for Past, Present and Future Generations” was published this year. Krohn spent five months writing his book, giving up his summer, said his mother, Marla Krohn, who is helping her son to promote his book. The two have embarked on a mini book tour around northeast Georgia, which they hope to turn into a broader tour.

“It is humbling and exciting at the same time to see Jonathan have such confidence in himself, more than most adults do, and to watch him interact with adults on adult issues and hold his own,” said Krohn’s father, Doug Krohn. “(Jonathan) has a passion for something he goes for it without fear, which is a God-given gift.”

Whatever your political leanings, you have to admit that this is one motivated, inspirational kid.
