When you ask a kid and a grandpa the same question about the world, it's interesting to see how their answers vary — or don't.

The fun crew at Soul Pancake took one of life's biggest, most complicated questions and asked everyday people what they thought about it:

"If you could change anything in the world, what would you change?"


They asked it to a wide variety of people, one as young as 5 and one as old as 105. What'd they have to say?

From a happy 7-year-old...

...to a straightforward and real-talkin' 83-year-old.

From a tech-focused 10-year-old...

...to a stop-the-fear-mongering 32-year-old.

It's all about how you personally see the world through your own eyes — no matter your age.

There was one similarity, though. Everyone who wanted to change something wanted to change it through kindness.

As life can sometimes feel overwhelmingly complicated, it's nice to know there's always a constant there: the desire for kindness.

It's as constant as the California sun!

Kindness has the power to change the world. Let's each do our part to make it happen.

Suni Lee, 18, a Team USA member from Minnesota, became the Olympic all-around gymnastics champion on Thursday night.

"It feels super crazy, I definitely didn't think I'd be here in this moment with the gold medal," Lee said after her win. "I'm just super proud of myself for making it here because there was a point in time when I wanted to quit."

Lee may be proud of herself, but she is just as excited to share the victory with the Hmong community and her father. Lee is the first Hmong American athlete to ever compete in the Olympics and the first Asian American to win the gold in the Olympics' all-around competition.
