With the TED prize just a week away from closing nominations it got me to thinking... 'out of the mouths of babes.'
Our children have so much creativity, empathy, compassion and a fresh look at the world without limiting beliefs on what can and can not happen. They see it with new eyes, coming at a problem from very unique ways (as they are not just trying to repeat a previous solution they are starting at the beginning, the whole picture).
I am always so amazed at what kids do come up with when asked (and not asked..) What would they put forward for the TED prize? If they had $1 000 000 how would they use it to make the world a better place, how will they inspire?
This could be a great exploration to ask your child what would be there wish for the world? How would they make it happen? What would they need?
Please share! I would love to hear what these creative thinkers come up with!
And if you know someone who inspires you, has a dream, a passion, a mission (or if you do!) nominate them (or yourself) by August 31st at www.TEDprize.org. You can also join along in the conversation and follow what other people wish for the world...it is quite fun to see all these great innovative ideas in so many areas. It all starts with inspiration with sparks ideas, community and passion!
