Please do take the time to watch this video clip. It is about 10 minutes long. The link takes you to the midpoint of his Ted Talk to where his presentation applies to our theme. Some of you may want to watch the whole thing, but without a doubt, if you watch the clip from where the link starts, you may gain a new perspective on life and our theme.
