When I first heard the name Sebastian Junger, I had no idea who he was and what his speech would be about. To say I was fascinated by him, is an understatement.

McCullough makes a point throughout his speech to say that being special is not just given to you; teenagers are not special by default. In the speech, while he is explaining why young people should look forward to more than just being special or different, in
Before watching the speech Georgette Mulheir’s speech, I never realized living in an orphanage could cause so many issues for children especially for small babies. It’s sad to hear, about the children who are changed only at certain times, and if for some other reason they need to be changed an hour later, that they would have to lay there in their own filth until their scheduled change. With those kinds of living conditions it makes sense, that children who grow up like that would have issues in their developed. Especially when compared to a child raised in a loving home.
