Hi. My name's Kirsty. I'm going to be born on the 18th of September 2014,

0:00:020:00:08

the very same day as the referendum on independence for Scotland.

0:00:080:00:13

The question is, what kind of country will I grow up in?

0:00:130:00:16

Will it be a Scotland that is fairer, more prosperous,

0:00:200:00:23

a Scotland where I can reach my full potential?

0:00:230:00:26

Or will it still be a country ruled by Westminster,

0:00:280:00:32

a country that is still the fourth most unequal in the developed world,

0:00:320:00:36

where the gap between rich and poor gets wider and wider?

0:00:360:00:40

Will it be a Scotland of opportunity,

0:00:420:00:45

a place where free higher education will always be a right for all,

0:00:450:00:49

where going to uni depends on your ability, not your bank balance?

0:00:490:00:53

Or will it be a United Kingdom where privilege rules

0:00:540:00:59

and learning costs tens of thousands of pounds?

0:00:590:01:02

Will the land of my birth be a true nation

0:01:040:01:06

that stands proudly alongside all other nations

0:01:060:01:09

with a voice and a vote to help build a better world?

0:01:090:01:13

Or will it be a country with no place in the world,

0:01:130:01:16

a country led by others into illegal wars

0:01:160:01:20

and used as a dumping ground for weapons of mass destruction?

0:01:200:01:24

Will I grow up in a Scotland

0:01:250:01:27

where our wealth and natural resources are in Scotland's hands,

0:01:270:01:31

harnessed to help everyone in Scotland prosper?

0:01:310:01:33

Or will it be more of the same old same old,

0:01:360:01:39

where our money is squandered by governments who are out of touch,

0:01:390:01:43

governments we didn't even vote for?

0:01:430:01:46

Will I grow up in a Scotland where the decisions about our future

0:01:530:01:56

are taken by the people who care most about Scotland,

0:01:560:02:00

the people who live here?

0:02:000:02:01

-ALEX SALMOND:

-This year, every single one of us

0:02:110:02:14

will be asked to make a choice between two futures.

0:02:140:02:16

It's a choice based on who you trust to make Scotland

0:02:160:02:19

a better country to live in,

0:02:190:02:21

the politicians at Westminster or people who live here in Scotland.

0:02:210:02:25

A No vote means we stay with the present system,

0:02:260:02:28

a Scotland stifled by the repeated failures of Westminster government.

0:02:280:02:32

A Yes vote means we choose a new direction for our country.

0:02:320:02:35

In an independent Scotland,

0:02:350:02:37

we can take the decisions that are right for us,

0:02:370:02:39

decisions like doubling childcare and increasing the state pension.

0:02:390:02:43

That's got to be the right choice for Scotland,

0:02:430:02:46

for all our people

0:02:460:02:47

and for children like Kirsty.

0:02:470:02:50

# If there's one great thing to happen in my life

0:02:500:02:54

# If there's one great day If there's one great height

0:02:540:02:59

# Let it be the time for peace Let it be the time of right

0:02:590:03:04

# If there's one great thing To happen in my life... #

0:03:040:03:09

So, when the 18th of September arrives and I arrive,

0:03:200:03:24

please vote Yes,

0:03:240:03:26

for Scotland,

0:03:260:03:27

for yourself

0:03:270:03:29

and for YOUR children's future.
