Hello all!  This is a great TED talk by Karen Armstrong.  Well worth the time to watch.

Hope this finds all well, enjoy!

She asks the TED community to help her build a Charter for Compassion — to help restore the Golden Rule (“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”) as the central global religious doctrine
