Yann Arthus-Bertrand's TED talk

I think people like Yann Arthus-Bertrand are inspiring and selfless because he's using his position to spread a powerful message to people of all classes around the world. He's spreading the message that people need to get informed about these REAL issues facing our earth and people. Without people like him making projects like "Home", global warming would continue to be put off and ignored. This is our worlds biggest threat, and it can't be ignored any longer. Without our planet, there wouldn't be us. We need to take action now and have a serious talk with our world leaders, a plan, an idea, anything to start this much needed discussion.

Katie Eleanor - Flickr artist

In the video, I really enjoyed listening to Katie talk about her recovery of her mental illness through art and photography. I whole-hardheartedly support any notion that you believe in yourself getting better through something you're passionate about. Personally her photos don't speak to me in the way they might to others but the fact that they help other people like her makes it nothing less than beautiful.
