The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes

*REPOST*

 

In 2008 I watched this video of 12-year-old, Severn Cullis-Suzuki,  delivering a speech about the state of our planet and a plea to humanity at a global U.N. conference

I’ve watched this 8-minute clip of a 12 yeard Severn addressing the U.N. more times than I can recall.

Yes, she is idealistic and sounds naive at times. She is only a child as she states. I just wonder why people like this lady are not into politics & leading the world to see a new perspective.

Actually, she is involved in politics She is one of those rare individuals who dedicates her life to making positive changes without the need to be put on a pedestal & looked up to in awe. She is behind the scenes. She doesn’t need a camera or a podium to talk on to make a difference. She walks the talk as the saying goes.

She is a human being making a difference. Where are these qualities of altruism to be found in global leaders in government?

We follow the blind to seek the light.

 

 

 

Here it is

The point to all this is that I shared this video on my FB personal profile and  received a fair comment

‘Wonderful, inspiring girl but what good has it done the world?’ 

This prompted me to do a bit of research on who and where this girl or lady is today.
