Thanks to Saviour Onassis, who sent me a link to this wonderful talk by Karen Armstrong:
It's her speech after winning the 2008 TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Prize, which is
designed to leverage the TED Community's exceptional array of talent and resources. It is awarded annually to three exceptional individuals who each receive $100,000 and, much more important, the granting of "One Wish to Change the World." After several months of preparation, they unveil their wish at an award ceremony held during the TED Conference. These wishes have led to collaborative initiatives with far-reaching impact.
Armstrong's wish is for a "charter for compassion."
