The Elders

The internet is a wonderful place when you can find initiatives like this.

The Elders are an independent group of eminent global leaders, brought together by Nelson Mandela, who offer their collective influence and experience to support peace building, help address major causes of human suffering and promote the shared interests of humanity.

Watching this video, seeing some of my greatest heroes all lined up and ready to share their wisdom with the world.. I’ll admit, I got teary eyed (especially when Tutu speaks.. boy I love that man).

Here’s a intro video, and the website is here.
