Nothing Will Bring You Peace Until You Fulfill The Calling In Your Heart.

  • fastcompany: A new film called Girl Rising shows how education affects nine girls from nine countries—with some help from famous voices like Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway.

    • rise in national wealth.
    • Lower rates of child mortality and HIV/AIDS.
    • Better educated future generations.
