If you can watch this without getting choked up, you're tougher than me!

Alan Rabinowitz appears here on 60 minutes. It's a really interesting piece. The part where he explains why he is so committed to preserving the big cats is a story he tells often, and it always breaks my heart. What a beautiful person.

Stories like this always make me so mad at schools and the conformity that it demands. Happily, things are much better than when Rabinowitz was a boy. But school still often demands a level of fitting in that make unique kids feel undervalued. Sigh.

Harry Chapin's "Flowers are Red" has always been inspirational for Dara and me.
