I went browsing videos on youtube just now. Video after video, I came accrossed a speech video by a girl, teenager to be exact. The video title was "The girl who silenced the world for five minutes". The title made me wonder what did she do ?
The video was recorded quite some time ago, cause the image seems 'old'. But what matter is her speech and its content. The description of the video mentioned that the girl was addressed a UN meeting on issue of environment, don't know on what year.
Listened to the whole 5 minutes speech made me think if all adults ever think like her. The delegations from various countries just remained in silent and seems to think of what she said.
I found few lines of her speech that were really deep in meaning and eyes opening.
"If you don't know how to fix it, please don't break it" - she referred to the problems existed in todays world; starvation, extinction, holes in ozone layer, polution and many others.
"Why a boy who has nothing is willing to share, why we, who have everything are so greedy" - pointing on the behaviour of people who are blessed with food and money but yet let it waste than to share it with the needy.
"You are what you do, not what you say" - reminding the delegations to stop making promises that every problems in this world were under controlled and whatsoever.
This inspiring speech should be listened and watched by everybody.
Thinking of what our contribution to the society, and the world.
