Candy Chang: Before I die I want to...
I just returned from a week-long retreat with 11 women who each told her story. We were to respond to the questions "What was the high point of your life, what was the low point, and where are you now in your life journey?" We were strangers to one another in the beginning, but quickly we bonded. Just stopping for a while to reflect on our lives, to be willing to share that with strangers, to notice human commonalities even though our stories were very different one from another was incredibly powerful. This is a strong form of deep community.

Peter Diamandis: Abundance is our future
But will technology save us quickly enough from declining global resources and rapidly occurring damages from global warming? With deforestation of the Amazon rain forests, possible (unknown) damage from fracking to extract oil and gas, extreme weather changes, rapid extinction of species, and possible flooding from ice melt, - can we possibly get it together in time?

What will you do to make peace on September 21?
My small contribution to peace on Sept. 21 is that I will host a meeting of my Awe-full group and I will show this TED talk. My friends and I meet to find ways to be full of awe to counteract negativity in the world. Usually we start with an inspiring TED talk such as Jeremy's and discuss it. Then we talk about our own experiences of awe, times when we have been full of awe (such as a time in nature, or being with an awe-inspiring person, or having a personal experience of awe.) We do not talk about religion. I invite people to gather friends and start their own awe groups.
