The Power of Voice

Severn Suzuki addressed the UN as a representative from ECO (Environmental Children's Organization) on the issue of the environment in 1992. Although this video may be old, her worlds ring loud and clear today. I urge you all to watch her speech to the UN:

Severn was twelve years old when she gave this address. Her courage and bravery are remarkable, but even more so is her passion. She is a living example of a youth taking on leadership and giving the adult world a reality check. She proved to us teens that we can have a voice among the adult world. Imagine hundreds and thousands of Savern's coming together and talking to their local governments. I think that would create quite the impact, don't you?
