Here is one I will add that truely is about helping human beings heal through the power of unconditional love that animals provide. ( This one is just beautiful. ) 8)

Thank you Carmela; I thought so as well. Here is how she shared her moment in the spotlight. ( Check out the memento she left behind as a reminder of how she got there. ) :idea:

Watched and enjoyed two documentaries. One is an animated interview of Noam Chomsky, called "Is the Man Who is Tall Happy?" The other is about the life of Roger Ebert, "Life Itself".

I saw your post here after I placed my own reference to this at the Mindset thread. Lucas sees straight, I think. The others are either like Scrooge in a Christmas Carol or they have other priorities for their philanthropic work.

This is one of the best interviews of someone I would call a role model I have ever read. Contains real-world relevant insight for anyone in today's chaotic media driven society. :idea:
