You must see this.

I sincerely hope that this video will work for you!!
It contains the strongest message for the health of our environment that
I have ever seen/heard.
I can do no more than ask you PLEASE to watch and each in our own small way
do something about what this 13 year old asks of us.

Hi Peter ~~ Couldn't get the video to
work, but saw the speech by that
wonderful little 13 year old girl on
an e mail from Warren.
I hope the other folks can see it.
Cheers, Merle.

Wow....that was some powerful piece Peter. Beautiful little girl...and so beautifully said. It's a very sad message...I hope more than just that room was listening.

Just think, she'd be 30 now, and sadly, no-one seems to have listened to her.

Cheers, Merle.

Hey Pete,
The young lady in question is a Canuck. She is one of a long line of young Canadian activists that have made an international statement. If you were impressed by her, check out this site:

Craig Kielburger was pretty amazing too.

Anyway, Severn's dad is David Suzuki and has a respected foundation in his name.

I don't point this out to diminish the message Severn delivered at all but, as a way of showing the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
