The Girl Who Silenced The World

In 5 minutes this young girl sums up our environmental crisis.She is the daughter of David Suzuki and is 13 years old when she gives this speech at the 1992 UN Rio conference. I was brought to tears the first time I watched it. I don’t know how anyone could watch this video and not be moved to take action. Please watch this!

    Laura: That was terrific. Since that was from the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 –I worked at your dad’s company at that time, by the way :) –I wonder what has become of that girl . . . Any idea? If not, I’ll do some research. Thanks for all you do.
