Just Wanted To Share This.....

I just had to share this: (Click on the link below)

One of my absolute favorite things to do on the web is get comfortable and listen to TED. TED is an invitation-only event where the world's leading thinkers and doers gather to find inspiration. It's a talk that Chris Abani gave about HUMANITY on TED. Chris Abani tells stories of people: People standing up to soldiers. People being compassionate. People being human and reclaiming their humanity. It's "ubuntu," he says: the only way for me to be human is for you to reflect my humanity back at me.

In Case You Missed It...

Madame Carla Bruni-Sarkozy sat down with and up close and candid interview with Barbara Walters that aired on Friday August 1st. Not everyone was able to or wanted to skip that date and catch the interview. For those of you that have been hiding under a rock, Carla Bruni recently married France's President Sarkozy after three months of a whirlwind romance. Then if that weren't enough, she took The Queen and London by storm when she sat in with the royals decked out in one of the most fabulous Prada-designed wardrobe's I've seen in the 21st century. Bruni who makes no qualms about her past {which includes the likes of Mick Jagger} mentions that "it was love at first sight" when she met Nicolas Sarkozy. You can view the full interview and watch video clips here.
