This Deeply Moving Poem by a Mother to Her 7 Month Old Daughter Has a Beautiful Message

The message to her baby is: "Don't worry about all the problems of the world. We're going to take care of it." 

26 year Marshall Island poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner wrote this poem for her 7-month old daughter and read it to world leaders at the recent UN Climate Summit held in NYC.

It's deeply, deeply powerful - and was received with tears and a standing ovation.‪#‎PeoplesClimate‬
