Inspiration...hope...feeling the fight

Here are a couple of clips that I have bookmarked because they both move me. One is very short and one a little longer, both a bit dated. If you have a few minutes - have a look. And just to add to the mix, here is a quote a friend shared with me this week (could be my slogan):

To be truly radical
is to make hope possible,
rather than despair convincing.

- Raymond Williams, Welsh academic, novelist and critic

Tianamen Square 1989

And this is Severn Suzuki, when she was 13. She's David Suzuki's daughter and is an adult activist now.

Hope & passion & courage = change.
And what a powerful, impassioned speech from such a young girl.
Dear Gary, thank you so much for sharing these two videos. I was looking for inspiration of sorts...

i heard Severn interviewed some time this winter on CBC radio. very funny stuff about what it was like growing up with her dad. what a courageous kid she was!!! and, by the looks of some of the listeners, her words cut into warm flesh and made them bleed a bit. i'd like to know if any of them felt it long enough to make some permanent commitments to the issues.
Too bad only the old farts are the world leaders.
