Elon Musk is one of the most influential people of our generation, and he made a surprise visit to Flint today.

You would think that a multi-billion dollar CEO wouldn't take the time out of his day to come and speak to kids in Flint, but you'd be wrong. That's what make Elon so great. He's also going that extra mile by donating money to help out Flint City Schools!

He made an appearance today at Doyle-Ryder Elementary school today to show his appreciation for the youth. He took the stage and spoke some powerful words.


If you think about the things we are able to do today, like flying and have a video chat over thousands of miles and ask Google anything. These would be considered witchcraft hundreds of years ago,” he commented. “It’s pretty incredible that things … are now real because of engineering and that’s what engineering does. It makes magic real.”

I have the utmost respect for Elon Musk and I appreciate that he's taking time away from building spaceships and electric cars to come talk to Flint...
