Interviewing People Changing Our World
I interview people who are doing things that change our world for the better.
They are everywhere. They are all different. What they have in common is dedication to something larger than themselves, a deep sense of honor and commitment to making much needed changes in their countries. They do it with grace and heart and are examples to all of us. What each of us does impacts the larger world. Even small steps make a difference. I hope they inspire you to step up and use your gifts to make this a better world in whatever way you can.

Ferial Pearson, creator of The Secret Kindness Agents. Deeply upset by the Sandy Hook shootings of children, Ferial decided that the world needs kindness now more than ever. She took the question to her students - "Would acts of kindness change lives?" They didn't have the answers but wanted to find out. When Ferial suggested that each student do an act of kindness daily and then it would be published at the school, the students said, no. Their contention: when we do something kind for someone and tell them about it, the focus is on us. But when we do an act of kindness and don't tell the focus is on kindness. Each student got a secret agent name and watch what happened next.
