Recently I’ve taken a journey into the world of altruism.

I wanted to meet good people. I was interested in hearing about their acts of benevolence, but I also wanted to understand who they truly are and explore their inner world. I narrated the tales of my journey in my book: “Secrets of Kindness: A Journey among Good People.”

In my view these people are our best teachers. Their actions, morals, personality, and values make them into a shining example to us all. I feel that my connection with them taught me a great deal about the road I strive to travel upon.
