This week, I came across the following quote from the Dalai Lama. He said, “The most crucial use of knowledge and education is to understand the importance of developing a good heart.” I couldn’t agree more.

I’m frequently asked how we choose our stories. We are drawn to stories which connect the local human experience to global issues. All of our stories convey the essence of what it is to be human.

Take a look at this collection I created on Inspiring People. The individuals in these stories are a source of inspiration. They provide ways to respond to life’s challenges with resilience, love, and forgiveness. The films in this collection are a powerful tool for integrating universal human values into the classroom.
