2. Greta is my hero...

I'm a teacher and she is the age of many of my students. I see hope in young people and Greta is the embodiment of that.

I particularly love her last remark when Colbert asks her what she was thinking when that photo of her staring at Trump as he walked by.

She's a master of the understatement!

3. I know, that was my thought, too! She is so well spoken and wise beyond her years

And I meant to look up her age, but to me she looks about 10!

4. She's older than she looks, for sure (18ish?)

But far wiser than those years.

Thanks for the clip

5. Wow.

My eyes teared up when I heard her say it was her moral duty as a human being and citizen to do everything she can - so young but so wise.
