Amazing Speech

I was going to continue my post from yesterday, but I saw this amazing speech to the UN by a young girl. Sadly, she made the speech in 1992 and apparently no world leader paid any attention. Let's hope that spreading this video around the Internet will have a bigger effect than her speech did in 1992. Let's hope that people will wake up to the fact that we live on a small planet and that we are slowly but surely destroying it. We live in an interdependent world. None survives alone. We have the resources to create a world free of hunger and poverty yet we squander the wealth of our own country on wars and other foreign entanglements. Perhaps it is time for a change.
