Although this speech was made in 1992, it is every bit as relevant today as it was then - indeed probably moreso. Hope you find it as inspiring as I do :)

Very touching and moving listening to her gave me goosepimples. She is so right -- the U.S. has so much... thank God for sites like Inspiration Peak and you-tube videos from which we can discuss these important values we should have been doing all along. In the last 10 years or so, we have started as a COUNTRY to care about what is happening to the ozone layer and the environment, thanks in part to this girl, Al Gore, and several others I cannot think of right now. But that is still such a short time ago in the grand scheme of things, but it is not too late. Perhaps this video can be a wake-up call to ALL of us to do our part in eliminating waste, and poverty. I know I recycle everything I can, and give money when asked, even if it is only spare change. But I know I can do more, and so can we. Let me get off my soapbox now since I was not the speaker and was not the one who started this thread. Thi video just struck a chord with me...
