"I am only a child yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on finding environmental answers, ending poverty and finding treaties what a wonderful place this earth would be. At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us how to behave in the world, you teach us not to fight with others, to work things out, to respect others, to clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures, to share not to be greedy.
Why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do. Do not forget... who you are doing this for... You are deciding what kind of a world we are growing up in."
Please make your actions speak for themselves.
Speech by Twelve year old Severn Suzuki in 1992 to the United Nations.
