This is a tough TED talk to watch because the woman's story is heart wrenching. I chose to share it partly because this woman is a walking miracle. I chose to share it despite the story being a 5-tissue-worthy tale. I chose to share it because in this season of gift giving it reminded me that the greatest gift we often give each other is personal support in times of need.
The gifts this woman received also came from sources often overlooked in our society. Love and kindness really are the most powerful energies on our planet.
