Dave Eggers on TED.
This is not a new TED video (2008) but I stumbled on it by chance and was moved by it. It is author Dave Eggers making some kind of Prize Speech on TED. I loved Dave Eggers' memoir "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" because of how honest, straightforward and funny it was. His non-literary self is just as much so. It is amazing how people with vision can so easily create momentous change when they reach out. The video inspired a sense of urgency in me to find ways to involve more community in our work at school, to share the great work we do with others who are less fortunate.
