Stanislaw "Stas" Gunkel

During the 2008 presidential elections, 7-year-old Stanislaw Gunkel blogged to support the Obama campaign. Inspired by his parents, who also have blogs, Stas started Report from Planet Stas’, which covers topics seemingly beyond his years, like alternative energy, the war in Iraq and Sarah Palin. One post documented something that bloggers of any age can only dream of: Barack Obama sent Stas a letter five days before the 2008 election telling him to "strive to make a difference everywhere you go."
