She is a hero in my eyes specialy with her age, but honestly is nice to go arround and meet the world leaders and it will help in her struggle but would it not be nice when the same world leaders active support her with her goal that is what is needed.

But she is a inspiration for everyone that beleives in freedom and humanity worldwide.
