My TED story

. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is a beautiful dedication for those who were killed in the attack and a priceless gift for their families & our future generations. Thank you Jake Barton and all the people involved in this project.

Jackson Katz: Violence against women—it's a men's issue
- I believe that correcting / condemning sexist/racist comments given by peers during conversations and gatherings is a good thing. I do it myself. But I'm not sure if this will reduce the number of cases of domestic violence dramatically. 1- Ads teaching/guiding people how to respond and not react in anger (in different scenarios), will help. 2-a- Identification of potential abuse victims OR people who have lived a traumatic childhood OR Emotionally unstable people. 2-b- Providing education on dealing with anger/trauma, giving them choices/role models, helping them set and achieve a simple goal will help.

Shekhar Kapur: We are the stories we tell ourselves
- This, technique, might be helpful in the brain storming and idea generation sessions. But I would not recommend this technique for the actual day of the shoot/day of action. A director is the captain of the ship. Imagine a captain in a 'state of panic'.
