Beautiful true story: I just met a man named Rory at the Service Department of my local car dealership, where I just learned it would cost enough to repair my car that I began looking at the lot for a new car. Rory and I get to talking about faith and family, about trying to make good decisions, choices that truly help our families when we don't have unlimited means. I ask his advice: how long will my CR-V last if I do the work, and is it wiser to buy a new car? He doesn't stand to make more money by talking me out of the purchase I was just about ready to make. He shares with me his own experience, and talks me down from the excitement of looking at new cars, smiles, shakes my hands, and then lowers the price to have the CR-V fixed. He told me his philosophy is to live gratefully and pay it forward. So friends, I will. Can I share with you this beautiful moment and its call to do something for someone else?

The world we all see will only become the world we all need when each one of us pauses, takes turns describing to another the world we each long for, and if we then commit to building that collective dream, grander than any one of us has the capacity to imagine alone.

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.

It's amazing to realize how many of us bridge the illusory void between the political poles. Where we stand and dream and work, caricatures disappear and vibrant, noble society is possible again.

You remember your heart's infinite capacity when love pours out through tears, words, and deeds.
