Andrew Solomon on TED

Andrew Solomon

On Monday, I came across this TED talk, but didn’t have time to watch it.  I kept this page open on my desktop all week.  Every time I’d come back to it, I’d think, “Man, I’ve got to listen to this when I have time.”

This morning, I had time.  
I listened.  
I cried.  
It was worth the wait.  

There’s always somebody who wants to confiscate our humanity.  
And there are always stories that restore it.
If we live out loud, we can trounce the hatred, and expand everyone’s lives.  
Forge meaning.  Build identity.  And then invite the world to share your joy…

For your Friday listening pleasure, I give you Andrew Solomon’s TED talk
