Jane Goodall: Nobel Prize for Peace

Jane Goodall is the most inspirational person I’ve ever met. I’ve had the distinct honor to interview her on several occasions, though it has been several years.

Visiting Mountain Gorillas in their homes in Rwanda is the most spiritual thing I’ve ever done. Here, I am standing only about 10 feet in front of wild gorillas, no bars, no cages, and no fear on either side. Behind me, a giant silverback gorilla, a mom and toward the end of the video, you…
