I am a true believer in the power of storytelling to connect us. Listening to the story of another, allows us find commonality where we may otherwise see division. Stories help us find understanding, knowledge, and inspiration. Which is why I love Ted Talks.
I have watched these Ted Talks numerous times, because I constantly find something new and valuable.
