Malcolm Gladwell on fulfilling our moral obligation to each other

My minor obsession with Malcolm Gladwell and search for talks, speeches and interviews led me to this YouTube video from a Children's Rights gala (~10 mins.).   The message resonated with me for many reasons—my love of dogs, my commitment to reducing the incidence of child maltreatment, my quest for ways to improve my work and life.

My takeaway is that we must demonstrate that Gladwell's statement that we do a "haphazard" job fulfilling our obligations to each other is no longer the case in the District of Columbia.   We should immediately work on ways to fulfill our obligations to others using the budget as a vehicle.   It is, after all, the most important piece of legislation crafted each year.

Who's in?
