Video Interviews With Heartfelt Leaders


Here's to all Heartfelt Leaders.  The Mandela's (we need some more).  The smart, yet kind.  The tough, yet warm-hearted.  You can make fun of them, call them hopelessly naive, even put them down and hurt them.  And yet, they will forgive you because they truly believe that you know not what you do.  They push the human race into fulfilling what is possible as a human being.  They don't act vindictively, retaliate against those who have hurt their world, nor abandon those who are hurting in it.  And while some may see them as Pollyannas, we see them as the heart and soul of this planet.  Because the people who are daring enough to care, in a world that calls them a fool for doing so, are the ones who just might heal it.
