Jeff Schwartz, the author of the amazing story Why I Believe In Angels and Miracles, shared with me this Ted Talk by his friend Joshua Wisch of Honolulu.


Joshua’s story, Harvesting Rice is extraordinarily heart-wrenching and powerful–that he stands before the world with such composure and serenity and shares his story without cracking is super-human. But, what really blew the top of my scull off is the staggering synergy and syncronicity with the next story we will be putting up on the site–a story about my brother and his incredible journey all over the globe. I’ll have more to say once we’ve posted Yvonne’s Story that takes place in Kigali, Rwanda. Thank you Jeff for sharing and thank you Joshua for your courage and grace.
