I'm very glad I learned about Bryan Stevenson at Google's Zeitgeist event. Here's why:
"I believe really simple things:"
No one is there worst act. Each of you is more than the worst thing we've ever done.
If somebody tells a lie, they're not just a liar.
If somebody takes something, they're not just a thief.
Even if you kill someone, you're not just a killer.
The opposite of poverty isn't wealth. The opposite of poverty is justice.
We have to judge how we're doing by how we treat the poor.
