Thanks for sharing this! What a strong, brave young woman. I'm thrilled that she's continuing the fight. I'm sorry you would think that you'd need to apologize to those who'd be offended by a girl speaking the truth. Unfortunately, her words seem to have gone in one ear and out the other at the UN.

I am part of a team at Sp that discuss issues. Politics, racism, religion, anything. Sometimes the discussion gets heated, but since we all are committed to respect and acceptance, we might disagree, but we get along well, and even become friends (LOL). I just want to share with you a link that was discussed there. It happened in 1992, during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is shocking that a 13 yo is so tuned with reality. What is missing with our leaders? Why don’t they do something? I truly hope the topic is not offensive to anybody and that I does not offend anybody. If it does I apologize ahead, since that was not my intention.
