Nine-year-old's speech captivates Chicago crowd

King George VI could have learned a thing or two on how to give a memorable speech from nine-year-old Asean Johnson, Chicago's new boy wonder.

The Huffington Post found a video clip of nine-year-old Asean giving a speech during a Chicago protest. The city has threatened to shut down many schools.

"You should be investing in these schools, not closing them. You should be supporting these schools, not closing them," Asean said amidst roaring applause. "We shall not be moved today. We're going to city hall We are not going down without a fight."

If you're still not inspired, watch the rest of the clip.
