The United Nations is meant to a beacon for truth and justice worldwide, however I can’t help thinking that the answer is with our children and not out of touch old men. I know, a little more serious than you are used to but you will not regret watching this one…
Hannah Neleson is a 16 year old girl from Northern Ireland. This address was held at the Waterfront Hall ahead of the G8 summit. Her impassioned speech is undeniably touching and it leaves you wondering why does it take a 16 year old to say this? Why are not our world leaders putting up their hands to consider issues that really affecting their people?
“I want to live in a country where it is not my religion that is important, but my value as a person that is significant.” Shades of Martin Luther King’s “I had a dream” calling for people to be judged by the content of their character rather than the colour of their skin.
This one is easy, Hanna you get a big thumbs up and Guts verdict from us. Keep up the good work and maybe one day we will see you not just as a visitor but a member of the G8, a member willing and able to pursue change.
