What motivates people to move through their own pain and become teachers and role models for others?
We see many examples on TED of people who have faced incredible adversity and challenges in their lives. What are the beliefs and characteristics that cause their continued effort to educate, support and encourage others? If we could identify, teach and encourage these qualities from childhood, it seems like it would be an important, powerful force in our world.
Closing Statement from Colleen Steen
For my "closing statement", the question is asked..."what did you conclude...was the question effectively answered...let people know the final answer". WOW!
I honestly don't think any question is 'effectively answered" until every single person in our world has responded to the question. There is always more information and insight to explore...in my humble opinion. We did, however, have some great comments, which may lead all of us to more questions and explorations in ourselves, and for that I am grateful:>)
I thought my last statement was my "closing statement". Nice to have another go at it...thanks TED:>)
