Today, we honor Pope Francis for his incredible TED Talk and for the way he lives his life every day in service of challenging what is, imagining what can be, and Moving Humanity Forward. Below are three key lessons from his powerful speech:
1. We All Need Each Other. None of us is an island or an autonomous and independent "I" separated from the other.
2. Solidarity Should Be the Default in All That We Do. Scientific and technological innovation are fine, Pope Francis said, but while we're busy discovering faraway planets, we also need to "rediscover the needs of the brothers and sisters orbiting around us."
3. We Need a "Revolution of Tenderness." Tenderness is being on the same level as the other, he said. It is the path of solidarity and the path of humility.
