Amazing Video ~ The Girl Who Silenced the World for Five Minutes

Video of a twelve-year-old girl speaking at a UN Meeting

Amazing Video!!! In an age of pop culture crap, beauty obsession, and compulsive consumerism this twelve-year old girl is a great example that children want to focus on more important things and are willing to work hard and take risks to have their voices to be heard.

It doesn’t matter where you stand on the particular issues she discusses because we can’t deny the power of her words and her strength. She wants to make a positive contribution to the world.

When people say that high school girls’ number one wish is to be thinner, I don’t buy it. Kids are thinking about their future, grades, how to pay for college, getting jobs, relationships, family, home life, and what is happening in the world around them.

I think this video speaks volumes about what our children are thinking about and capable of accomplishing. I’m sure she made an impact on at least a few of those UN members. What an inspiring girl!
