Watching this video from TED 2002 made me think a lot about how much we value people - what we think about those on the margins. What Bill Strickland achieved up to that point was pretty awe-inspiring.
A great line: "you must be prepared to act on your dreams, just in case they do come true". A tremendous story of how treating people with respect makes a real impact. It's also a great story of how music can be such a vital part of living. Some great sounds from Herbie Hancock too.
There's a ton of content on his website, but enjoy the inspiration here and reflect on hope. I thank God for people of hope, for those who don't give up in the face of adversity - and for the hope I have, a that doesn't disappoint.
