      From his speech:

      “And that’s what we need right now, we don’t just need one leader, we don’t just need one inspiration, what we badly need right now is that collective spirit. And, I know that those young people, those hope carriers are gathering around the world…

      “…So, young people, who are in the audience who are listening, my message to you is simple: keep believing, keep marching, keep building, keep raising your voice. Every generation has the opportunity to remake the world. Mandela said, “Young people are capable when aroused of bringing down the towers of oppression and raising the banners of freedom.” Now is a good time to be aroused. Now is a good time to be fired up.

      “And, for those of us who care about the legacy that we honor here today, about equality and dignity and democracy and solidarity and kindness- those of us who remain young at heart, if not in body, we have an obligation to help our youth succeed.”
