Free the Children’s 60 Minutes SegmentNovember 26, 2012 by Sally Farhat Kassab
If you didn’t see Craig Kielburger of Free the Children yesterday, it’s a must-watch. The show interviewed him both in 1996, and now, and follows his path. It’s moving and inspiring.
“Kids are looking to get involved,” he said. “They’re searching for it. And in an era where, you know adults often are looking for meaning and purpose in their lives, kids also want to assert who they are, not just by the videogames they play or the peer groups they belong to, but by the contribution they make. And that’s part of a youth self-identity in the world. And not only is it good for the child, my God, our world needs it.”
