Xiuhtezcatl Martinez of Earth Guardians, speaking to the U.N. in Paris

The writer finds it deeply disturbing to hear this 15 year old boy speak with passion about what affects us all, while the adults behind him disregard both him and his message…The comments on the video published on the internet tell us that this does not represent everyone – not all of us are sleep-walking into ruin. And there is something as deeply encouraging in hearing Xiuhtezcatl and some of the other extraordinarily young voices out there, who seem to have access to wisdoms which elude most adults, and to be actively living that through in our world. Gratitude.

Thank you as well to ForestEthics on Facebook, for posting the link to this film.
