The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes

This is simply a must see demonstration by one eloquent young girl explaining to the UN how things are in the world. This was totally unexpected from someone so young and you can see and sense the disbelieve and then the full realisation by those she was addressing. With millions of viewings on youtube this is a must see with a message.

Representing a children’s Environmental organisation she and her 13 yr old friends travelled 5000 miles at their own expense to present their case.

She is here to speak for generations to come; here to speak for the helpless and yet she is afraid because of so many global issues and she addresses the following and more:

  • global warming
  • ozone layer
  • depletion extinction of species
  • River polution
  • Deforestation
  • War
  • Poverty
  • Behaviour
  • Respect
  • Greed

“I am only a child but this is how I feel!”

Her final words epitomise the speech..

“You are what you do not what you say…well what you do makes me cry at night.

I challenge you…make your actions reflect your words.”

This is truly a griping short 7 minute video which should be held as an iconic address and reflected upon by those in “power”
