Piece Comment

Review of At the Children's World Water Forum, girls from Kenya and Nigeria shares her views

This piece literally puts me to shame. Twelve year olds are shining light on important ideas, views and problems that people (especially myself) do not pay attention to. When I think of Africa I never thought about the problem of water and how it affects the future of the teenage girls that live there. I never thought about this problem until I heard this story. This piece contained a vivid picture of two powerful and educated twelve year olds and it gives an example of how much the youth can be independent in their own thinking. I always look for stories that I feel no one ever tells and I think this piece is one of them.
