Before I die, I'd like to live in a world where/that _________ ?
Before I die, I'd like to live in a world that wasn't as selfish. Right now, the vast majority of people are greedy and we focus more on making money than helping others. We rarely listen to others and try to solve their problems. We teach our children the golden rule -- treat others as you wish to be treated and yet we treat each other poorly. We need to start teaching children to think about if they were in someone else's point-of-view. Oprah gave a thought provoking speech. Here is part of her finale speech: "I've talked to nearly 30,000 people on this show, and all 30,000 had one thing in common: They all wanted validation. If I could reach through this television and sit on your sofa or sit on a stool in your kitchen right now, I would tell you that every single person you will ever meet shares that common desire. They want to know: 'Do you see me? Do you hear me? Does what I say mean anything to you?' "Understanding that one principle, that everybody wants to be heard, has allowed me to hold the microphone for you all these years with the least amount of judgment. Now I can't say I wasn't judging some days. Some days, I had to judge just a little bit. But its helped me to stand and to try to do that with an open mind and to do it with an open heart. It has worked for this platform, and I guarantee you it will work for yours. Try it with your children, your husband, your wife, your boss, your friends. Validate them. 'I see you. I hear you. And what you say matters to me.'" I'm the president and founder of Restoring the Meaning of Education. RME wants to validate: students, teachers, professors, politicians, journalists, and the list goes on.

Jamie Oliver: Teach every child about food
Schools should lead by example. They tell students to eat healthy, but if you look all over campus, all you will find are vending machines filled with sugary and high calorie snacks or cafeteria food that's filled with chemicals to make it last for days or even weeks. In cooking classes, teachers should make their students cook healthy meals. They should also teach about nutrition and exercise.

Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?
The school curriculum has way too many rules. It doesn't allow teachers, professors, and students to be creative. For example, if a teacher tells her students to draw a vase, you might get a few pictures that are really creative and out of the ordinary. However, the vast majority of them will look similar. If you tell students they can draw whatever they want to, then you're going to get students to think outside-of-the box. When students actually care about what they're working on, they'll work harder on it. They don't really care about drawing a vase, but they do care about drawing something they picked. Even art classes can kill creativity. Art classes are supposed to spark creativity, teach students a concept (how to crosshatch), and improve students' skills. Music classes are the same way. Teachers and professors tell students to memorize songs. What if students worked in groups or by themselves to create a song?
