    Stop and listen to one child

    This video shows Severn Suzuki speaking at the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Jabeiro, at the age of 12.  It was a powerful speech!  Sadly, this speech was delivered in 1992 – eighteen years ago.  Clearly the world leaders did not heed her powerful message.

    If we interviewed the children of South Africa, I wonder what they would want to say to the adults of our nation?  As teachers we are in a unique position to hear what our children have to say.  Let’s all resolve to take a little time between the telling and teaching, to stop and listen.  We can learn important lessons from children too.
