I think it is great, the look of shame on the adults faces as she spoke to them was great.
Unfortunately most if not all will go home and do nothing.

well, I think she is a brave and inteligent young person. The speach has been recorded. We are her witnesses. What will we do as a collective. We now have the "99%" protesting world wide, is this the start of the NEW WORLD COOPERATIVE we all crave?
Life is mostly froth and bubble, but two things stand like stone. Kindness in anothers trouble, and .courage in your own. Annon.

Tears swelled up in my eyes when I watched this short video clip...

The speech of the 12-year-old is a detergent to hearts, and voice to wake up the numb mind of people... I was also reflecting on myself...

Her mentality is way precoctious than her peers, and much mature than many adults who are virtually juvenile.

I am very curious about two things:

- How can she have such profound thoughts and clear-sighted perspective about the issues from pollution, poverty, wars being a 12 -year-old?

- Since she mentioned she has no agent behind her, how could an oridinary kid be able to deliver a speech at the UN meeting?
