Relevant to Today: 13 Year Old Speaks to the United Nations.

Posted by gottabkd on Thursday, June 28, 2007

OK, so she may not have been your average 13 year old… and not every 13 year old, let alone few others, would get the opportunity to get angry with, I mean speak to the United Nations. 

But then again, not many of us can claim that David Suzuki is their father either. Suzuki, a Canadian Broadcaster and environmentalist has a daughter named Severn, Severn Suzuki that is and she has had the opportunity to follow in her father’s footsteps.
Creating her own “Eco org.” at the age of 13 and standing up for the ” future of the world, the environment and specifically her future here on earth.
A future that apparently she was unsure of due to the fact that the elders of this earth, specifically you me and anyone over 25, needed to make a change NOW! So this was filmed back in 1991 but the message is relevant to today, especially with all the talk of Global warming currently going on.
Now 28, her future is still bright, she has accomplished many things while following the evironmentalist track, even has a Wiki page about herself…

But this video of this young, goal orientated, 13 year old is still inspiring.

Take a look here:

Powerful, awesome and just plain encouraging. And kinda scary that this message is just as relevant today as it was then. Think about it then do your part.
