The Beautiful & Inspiring TED Talk You Don't Want to Miss

 I vaguely remember hearing or seeing this man before, but on my way to work today I listened to his most recent TED talk* as a podcast.  Even without the visuals I had tears in my eyes.  This less than 10-minute video is something you don't want to miss.  If you're having a bad day, it is sure to cheer you up.

*I have a dream that someday I will give a TED talk. It will be inspiring and touching and people will learn from it.  And if it's really good it will go viral.

In the meantime, since one of my core values is learning and growing I can easily spend hours watching these talks.  So much goodness there.
