I am beginning to become hesitant in sending along things that I receive in my civilian e-mail; more often than not, it's old news, and all of you savvy, enlightened readers have heard it all before.

I am also completely opposed to those annoying e-chain-mails. You know the ones - the ones that make you want to burn your computer, change your name, sever all ties and go live in a cave. The ones where you must send this message to "x" people in "y" minutes, or suffer wrath "z". Math variables and emotional blackmail just do not seem appealing to me.


This one got to me. And the request? "Make this Video Go Around the World". Between YouTube and the Great Big Blogosphere, this should be able to happen quite easily.

So, watch.

Or don't. Pestilence, friendlessness, misery - none will befall you if you choose not to look. I promise you.

But I will promise you this - should you decide to click away, you will have missed the opportunity to hear an eloquent young woman beautifully present her case, and keep a room of adults captivated and moved for 6 minutes.

"Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They were successful in many projects before 1992, when they raised enough money to go to the UN's Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Their aim was to remind the decision-makers of who their actions or inactions would ultimately affect. The goal was reached when 12 yr old Severn closed a Plenary Session with a powerful speech that received a standing ovation."

Wow! I posted a video today too that I had received via email. Only mine is not nearly as eloquent as this, as mine has fruit and a bare butt involved.

Wow...what can I say? W.O.W. (not World of Warcraft, but rather an exclamation)

What a good kid. God bless her.

Count Bubs von Tiki: Yeah, she kicked some UN butt, did she not?
AND!! AND!!! She's Canadian! We're such a freakin' fierce lot - we've got y'all fooled, thinking we're so polite and then KAPOW!
