Most of the time, I feel like the world is wonderful but has horrible problems that I have little power to fix.

Maybe you feel this way, too.

every day with inspiration and joy in compassion. ~ Waylon Lewis

    I do have a question / comment. I couldn't help thinking, that this story is mindblowing, real, inspiring, and full of compassion and work. So refreshing. I want to do something too, with my hands and life.
    I do think though, that there are tons of other stories like Maggie's… in each of our cities and countries. Of nuns, of school directors, of social workers who meet abandoned kids, and raped women, and drug addicts, and humans in vulnerable conditions who make their lives all about helping them find or even build them a home, a school, arranging food for them, or psychology support. And I think it is so very important to promote them as well. To recognize these local people. Because they are near and supporting humans just as important as these wonderful kids in Nepal that Maggie supports. And so local heroes and organizations should be at the top of our mind as well, in the cover of NY Times magazine, and blogged about so that we know they exist, and that they need our help. To know we can make a difference and make something with our lives here, near by, helping local heroes.

    I don't know what you guys think about that…. This work is amazing. Thanks so much.

    Some of the footage that was used in this "episode" was from my film Opening Our Eyes created by my daughter and myself on a 99 day journey around the world shining a spotlight on 9 change makers – all making our world a better place. From a doctor treking through the mountains of Thailand to serve the poor to a food rescuer in Australia to two woman helping the inner city poor of Detroit.
    Our goal in making the film was to inspire and motivate others to create the world we want to live in.
    Please check it out and see what others are doing around the world.

    This is truly amazing! Maggie is doing an amazing job connecting with the needy, those who feel left out. However not everyone has a heart of gold. On the other hand, i really appreciate brandon too. People like you are the reason that humanity lives!
