How Can We Create More Heroes?

Good day and welcome to the end of the week, and the start of the holiday weekend.

My sincere thanks to all who gave such terrific feedback to the subjects we've shared this week. I'm convinced more and more of the enormous value you each bring to the world. This is certainly a better place for your presence in it.

As is our way, we end the week with a short video. This one is particularly dear to me as it highlights what I believe lives in each of us.

It's starts with a serious question. Can modern science help us to create heroes?

That's the lofty question behind Philip Zimbardo's Heroic Imagination Project, started by a Stanford professor who has spent 50 years teaching and studying psychology. The goal of the project is simple: to put decades of experimental research to use in training the next generation of exemplary Americans, churning out good guys with the same efficiency that gangs and terrorist groups produce bad guys. In this video, he inaugurates the project.

Have a wonder-full holiday weekend.

See you on Tuesday.

I appreciate you all.
