Aleksandra Kulczuga has a good piece on America’s youngest health-care advocate:

Eleven-year-old Marcelas Owens, who last week invoked his deceased mother’s memory during a speech on Capitol Hill, won’t stay America’s youngest health-care activist for long — his sister Monique, 7, is next to be thrust into the limelight.

“She’s learning the process like Marcelas learned the process,” the siblings’ grandmother, Gina Owens, an activist herself, told The Daily Caller. “Now that the 7-year old wants to know more about it, whenever we do events or workshops with Wa-CAN [Washington Community Action Network], Marcelas will come home and immediately tell his sister about it, how fun it was or how hard it was.”
