    Jane Goodall on What it Means to Be Human

    Jane Goodall on What it Means to Be Human

    Jane Goodall’s early research studying chimpanzees helped shape the self-understanding of our species and recalled modern western science to the fact that we are a part of nature not separate from it. From her decades studying chimpanzees in the Gombe forest to her more recent years attending to human poverty and misunderstanding, she reflects on the moral and spiritual convictions that have driven her, and what she is teaching and still learning about what it means to be human.

A gift to us all

John Lewis is a man that has led us all to a much better place, a place of equality among the people, the truth overrules in our justice and only the truth. This man was in my entire life but do to my ignorance I did not realize all that he has done for me and the rest of us.
