Don’t listen to her. She’s only a child!

I stumbled upon this video that made me numb and hopeful at the same time.

Severn Suzuki addresses the UN conference on Environment 1992 at Rio on behalf ECO  (Environmental Childrens Organisation) run by a bunch of 12 and 13 year olds. She must have turned 33 this year. 2 decades and 1 year on, we’ve only plundered more.

When will we STOP!!?

Her morality accuses our ethics.

Did you hear the anger, the angst and the anxiousness? Did you hear her plead for us to stop plundering the planet? Did you hear her cry for justice and for a safe future for her children? If you didn’t, hit the play button again. And again … and again, till you do.

Amen.
