At The U.N. HeForShe Campaign Launch
The goodwill ambassador also eloquently explained why the campaign is focusing on males: “We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.” #heforshe

This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within. The video contains a message that touches us all and is riddled with truth throughout.
“I sometimes feel like an alien creature, for which there is no earthly explanation,”
begins Woody Harrelson’s introspective poem.
“I feel like a run-on sentence in a punctuation-crazy world.”
This spoken word piece is brought to life in video with compelling images of the present day dilemma, where rules and values are dictated by unnatural forces seemingly beyond the control of our own lives. We have come too far in a direction that has removed us from ourselves.
Woody Harrelson asks for a return to an ethos of caring and belonging that was “pre-us.”
Check this out and share Woody’s Thoughts from Within.

A crowd of family and friends gathered for a memorial service in North Carolina to honor Maya Angelou and her indelible voice as an author, activist and luminary.
Among those who called Angelou a "mentor, mother/sister and friend” was Oprah Winfrey, who joined dignitaries, including former President Bill Clinton and first lady Michelle Obama, to reflect on the renaissance woman's prolific legacy. The service was held at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, where Angelou taught for three decades.
Winfrey wiped tears as she recalled Angelou’s guidance throughout her career. She first met Angelou as a budding TV reporter in Baltimore. Impressed during the interview, the iconic poet took Winfrey under her wing — just as she had done for so many.
“She taught me the poetry of courage and respect,” Winfrey said. “She was always there holding me up to know myself.”
