Why You Should Be Kind To Everyone | Daryl Davis

One person’s kindness has the power to change the world. Let me prove it. - Daryl Davis
"I’ve been to 57 countries on every continent except Antarctica. I’ve played music in every state except Alaska. I’ve gotten along with every kind of person, all over the world. The idea that we all can’t get along is stupid. My life proves it. What I’ve learned is every single person, no matter how different from myself, all over the world, has the same 5 core values encoded within us. We all want to be loved, we want to be respected, we want to be treated fairly, we want to be heard, and we want the same thing for our family as everybody else wants for their family. Kindness is treating even those we might consider our worst enemies with these values."

Hi there.

I bet you've seen some great "films for action" that aren't in our library yet. 

Why not add that documentary or video directly to our library? Half of our best content was added by members. Submissions just need to be non-fiction, embeddable (like from Youtube or Vimeo), and related to activism or changing the world in some way. 

Here are some more tips on adding videos. We'd love you to become a regular contributor!
