Of course he is amazing...he's from Mississippi. :)As you can tell I grew up in Mississippi. I wonder if he has a Southern accent.What an accomplishment for such a young person. There was a similar thing that happened when a girl from the U.S. went to visit the Soviet Union. Now I remember (thanks to the Internet), it was an 11 year-old girl from Maine called Samantha Smith. This was back in 1983. Six years later, the Cold War ended and the Berlin Wall fell.Here's a story about it:http://us-russia200.moscow.usembassy.gov/200th/anniversary.php?record_id=SamanthaEssay
Here's more information on Samantha Smith via Wikipedia. She really was truly loved by the Soviet/Russian people.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samantha_SmithThe people of Russia remember her more fondly than the U.S. does.
